Simon says, "Sorry, no record deal."

I ran across this early this morning. Apparently, Simon Cowell really likes 6-year-old Connie Talbot's singing, but not enough to follow through on the record deal he proposed. His record label reps said she's too young for a singing career, so even though he said her voice is pure magic she won't be recording with BMG anytime soon.

There is a video at the link, and there's no doubt that she's good. The kid sings better than I do! For once, though, I agree with Simon. Child star syndrome aside, she could benefit from waiting a while before breaking into the music business. Yeah, she could make money now. She could also blow her voice before she's old enough to drink. She's amazing now, but with a few years vocal training she'll be phenomenal.

I hope we see more of her, but not for a while. For Pete's sake, she needs to be a kid for a while.
