Simon Cowell is a 'big meanie' says Natalie Okri

Britain's Got Talent youngster Natalie Okri has said that Simon Cowell was a "big meanie" for not voting for her in Sunday's semi-final.

The ten-year-old singer was eliminated in the first semi after Piers Morgan and Simon Cowell voted for Diversity to take the second place in the grand final.

Natalie told the Daily Mirror that she was unhappy with her choice of Jamelia's Superstar and said that she thought that the song did not allow her to showcase her talent.

She said: "I hated the song I sang, it didn't let me show how good my voice is.

"I agreed with Simon when he said it was the wrong song for me, although I still think he's a big meanie for voting against me."

Okri's mum Tabeth Mupondihunga has claimed that producers at the show rejected songs that would show off Natalie's talent.

She said: "The songs that Natalie wanted to sing were dismissed by the producers and we, without knowing better, gave in to their demands.

"They even told Natalie not to dance as much, when she is a very good dancer."

She added: "We knew that Simon would not like the song and I think the producers knew that too. I am not angry with the judges and I am incredibly proud of my little girl."
