X Factor plays tribute to COP15

This might be just about the most unlikely partnership imaginable, but it turns out that Simon Cowell is a bit of a climate activist. Saturday night’s show saw Simon’s artist Danyl Johnson performing Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror”… in front of a screen showing images of burning forests, stormy seas and stranded polar bears.

This may have been greeted with little enthusiasm by Cowell’s fellow judges, (“What’s with climate change, Simon?” from Louis and “I just didn’t get the polar bears” from Danni) but it’s good to see him throwing his not inconsiderable weight into the whole thing… even if it was possibly the wrong decision for his artist…

Still, if even The X Factor is getting involved, maybe we really are getting somewhere.
