Rain delays Simon Cowell from making it to South Carolina 'The X Factor' auditions


Earlier today, TV Rage told you that Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio would be joining Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell as judges on the next season of The X Factor.

There is no rest for the wicked, however, and auditions for that program's third season are already underway. Today auditions were taking placed in Charleston, South Carolina, but fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your feelings on the British gentleman) Cowell almost missed them.

Heavy rains have battered the South Carolina coastal area today, causing flooding and traffic gridlock, which caused Cowell to become stranded.

Cowell took to Twitter to voice his frustrations, saying that he was “Stuck on an island. Flooded in. Can’t get to the venue.”

Lovato, Rowland and Rubio all made it there without incident, however. In fact, the women even joked about his absence from the North Charleston Coliseum.

“Ooooh, I’ll be Simon,” kidded Rowland as she parked herself in Simon's chair. 

However, Cowell did eventually make it to the arena, saying “Is it a coincidence that when I arrive, everything gets better?” as he walked through the door. What a rascal.

Cowell then sat down and shot down a hopeful with a quick “That’s four no’s, congratulations."

Auditions continue in Charleston tomorrow.

Too bad we can't have bad weather everywhere Simon goes... The less of him the better!
