"I'm happy for her, actually. I like Mariah," says Cowell. "I think she's going to find it difficult to say no. You've gotta say no to people. She's sweet."

"But I think she'll be great," he continues. "I got wind of this last week, so I kind of knew it was going to happen. But I'm happy for her."
