Are you threatening me? Simon Cowell was left shocked after he was given a stern warning from pint-sized rapper Brain Bradley during the East coast auditions of the X Factor last night

He's surely received threats before throughout his long-spanning career as a notoriously sharp-tongued reality TV judge and producer.

But possibly not from the mouth of a 14-year-old teenager.

Last night Simon Cowell was left shocked after he was given a stern warning from pint-sized rapper Brain Bradley during the East Coast auditions of the U.S. X Factor.


Rap: But as the teenager busted into a rap it was clear to see that his threatening tone was actually part of a performance that sent the audience into a frenzy

The teen became irritated after Simon questioned him on why he deserved to be on the talent show.

'Yo yo Simon, I see you man... What is your problem man?... Are you serious? Yo, I swear on your life... if we were on the streets,' he directed at the 51-year-old Brit.

But as the teenager busted into a rap it was clear to see that his threatening tone was actually part of his performance that sent the audience into a frenzy.


Crowd pleaser: Judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul busted out some moves

As the crowd went wild for the youngster, the judges stared around in disbelief as he rapped about his mother.

'Brian honey, I am scared of you, and I am not going stare at your mother,' joked judge Nicole Scherzinger.

L.A . Reid, who has produced the likes of Kanye West, Usher and Rihanna, told Brian he had been waiting for someone like him to come into his professional life for years.


Suitably pleased: Even after being turned out by the teenager before his rhyme, Simon was also blown away


Cute: With high hopes of becoming the next big thing, Andy Silikovitz, 43, has been single all of his life


Cheer Squad: Accompanied by his mother who stood backstage with Steve Jones, he revealed to the judges that he had never had a date nor been married, but was hoping that the $5 million prize money would help him find love


Hugs: Simon motioned the middle-aged man to come over and share cuddle with Paula, who happily obliged and embraced him


Confident: Touting herself as the next Mariah Carey, who had 'successfully blown away friends and family with her karaoke abilities Clarissa 'Cashmere' Cheatham was confident


Fit: It was almost like Simon knew what was coming when he broke into a fit of laughter, along with Paula, before Clarissa's terrible performance


Blonde beauty: With her stunning looks Cari Fletcher was a shoe in from the start


Duo: With an army of fans in the audience, Teenage duo Ausem said that they believed and felt the passion in their music and performed of Christina Perri's 'Jar of Hearts'


Awkward: One half of the group, poor Emily, got singled out, with both L.A.and Nicole telling Austin that he was the better singer, and discussed the possibility of splitting the pair up


Dreamy: Simon declared 21-year-old car enthusiast Toro Wolashin as a man's dream, after she told him that she wanted to open her own car shop


No good: Both Jor-El Garcia nor Devon Tally couldn't cut it in Miami


Hunk: Handsome Brennan Hunt was the epitome of a country rock star with his big blue eyes, Southern drawl and raspy voice


Star: Jazzlyn Little brought down the house with her rendition of Mary J.Blige's 'I'm Going Down'


Applause: The performance earned her a standing ovation from the judges

Bleary eyed: Tara Palmer Tomkinson looking the worse for wear outside The Box nightclub in Soho


It was never going to be long before Britain's most renowned It Girl was photographed outside the country's most talked-about new nightspot.

And Tara Palmer-Tomkinson clearly enjoyed her evening at The Box, the Soho venue at the centre of controversy over its risqué burlesque performances.

A seriously good night? Tara looks as if she had a hell of a time inside the notorious Soho club

It had all started so well : Tara, right seen earlier in the evening, and left, looking seriously bedraggled after leaving The Box

The socialite, 39, was pictured leaving in the early hours of yesterday morning looking very much the worse for wear.

The sleazy club has become increasingly popular with celebrities - and even royals - for its performances featuring topless women and reputedly live sex acts.

Unsteady: Tara leant on the club wall for support and appeared to be exchanging words with the doorman

Bloody hellish: Tara shows off a cut on her finger as she finally leaves the club

However, it's not clear what events occurred inside the Soho nightspot that left the heiress looking quite so shell-shocked.

As she left she appeared to be having words with one of the burly doormen, and even got involved in a flashmob like impromptu dance party
in the street.

Accident: Tara's spokesperson explained she cut her finger while picking up her handbag from under the table

She was also spotted by onlookers slumped against a wall outside of the club, was also nursing a cut on her finger.

Tara's spokesperson explained: ' She cut her finger quite deeply while picking up her handbag from under the table.

'She caught it on broken glass. Tara then left to have it treated and was naturally in shock.'

Boogie night: Tara keeps the party going in the street

The club has been visited by Prince Harry who spent an evening there with friends in February.

While actress Keira Knightley and cricketer Kevin Pietersen have also been pictured at the venue.

But Tara clearly was keen to check it out for herself and left looking like she'd enjoyed it a bit too much.

The evening had started so well, as the socialite looked sleek in her rock-chick outfit before hitting the club.

Party on: Tara carries on partying in the street and playfully takes party goers cap

She had attended the Quintessentially Awards at 1 Marylebone and left looking like the party was already in full swing as as she made her way to The Box.

It had been a different story earlier in the day when she was snapped looking much more presentable as she decided to match her outfit with the weather.

She donned a pair of red hot jeans, showing off her slim legs with a skinny fit, as she headed out for a shopping trip yesterday.

On her way home: Miss Price left the birthday celebrations after the meal - opting to avoid carrying on the party


It was supposed to be her friend's special night, but Katie Price managed to steal the limelight from Lauren Pope on a night out to celebrate her 28th birthday.

Miss Price, 33, joined Lauren and several friends, including fellow TOWIE star Maria Fowler, for a jaunt to central London.

The motley crew hit seafood restaurant Zilli in Soho, before heading to the Shadow Lounge to continue partying.

Eye of the tiger: Katie Price outstaged her friend Lauren Pope during her birthday celebrations in central London wearing an unusual pair of leggings

But it was Katie Price's rather obscure wardrobe choice that became the centrepoint of the evening.

The glamour model wore a white vest with a large tiger face emblazoned across its entire front,with an unusual pair of leggings with sheer panels down the sides, metal detailing down the front of the legs and studded knee pads.

She completed the outfit with a pair of beige ankle boots.

Birthday girl: The glamour model keeps hold of her birthday balloons as she poses with friends Tommy Clark and 'Mikey Kardashian'

According to reports it took a grand total of 16 hours for Miss Price to have her new hair extensions fitted.

Despite her outlandish outfit overshadowing her friend's toned down look, Katie sensibly opted to head home early after the group had shared a meal together.

Celebrity chef Aldo Zilli personally cooked for the pair, and Katie Price dined on a healthy organic baked sea bass without drinking – taking seriously her new role as Lauren’s agent and leaving at 8pm.

Her early exit may well have been to allow Lauren to soak up all of the attention on the night.

I think the party's over there: Lauren tries to direct her friends as the party crew amble around Soho

No thrills: Lauren Gooder and Maria Fowler were unusually understated

Meanwhile birthday girl Lauren looked great in a far more understated LBD which perfectly complimented her fantastic figure.

The birthday girl carried a foil balloon throughout the evening, so she at least got a share of the attention during the course of the night.

Katie and Lauren have been friends for some time and have been pictured partying together on several.

Unsociable: Lucy Meckleburgh and her boyfriend Mario were pictured outside Zilli's but they didn't pop in to say Happy Birthday to Lauren

Most recently Lauren attended a birthday party for Miss Price's boyfriend Leandro Penna.

Also present were Lauren's friends and The Only Way Is Essex co-stars Maria Fowler and Lauren Goodger.

Maria, 25, wore a patterned mini dress by AX Paris, while Lauren Goodger wore a similar cut blue number with long sleeves by Gorgeouscouture.com.

Turning the tables: Aldo Zilli snaps the paps while hosting Lauren Pope's birthday - he later posted his photo to Twitter

Both ladies kept their top halves covered up, perhaps to allow their friend the birthday girl to bask in the limelight.

Coincidentally fellow TOWIE star Luck Mecklburgh and her new man Mario walked past the restaurant while their co-stars were inside, but they didn't pop in to say hello.

Earlier in the evening Lauren was obviously excited about her impending night out.

Party people: Lauren and her motley crew make their way through Soho


She tweeted: 'Headin into London for my bday celebrations, gotta feelin this could be a drunken one!!'

Her first stop was Zilli's restaurant, where the group enjoyed a spot of seafood put on by hosts Aldo and Nikki Zilli.

The posse, which also included Lauren's friends Tommy Clark, Jemma Stern and a few colourful characters including hairstylist 'Mikey Kardashian' and Joey Haines, ended up in gay venue the Shadow Lounge.

The private members-only club touts itself as 'one of the most unashamedly stylish, fashionable and sumptuous experiences in the capital'.

Barking up the wrong tree: Dance expert, Louie Spence reveals a bit too much of Carol Vorderman on Loose Women


She might be 50 and single, but Carol Vorderman appeared to be barking up the wrong tree as she lapped up attention from Louie Spence today.

Pineapple Dance Studios star, Spence, appeared on ITV1's Loose Women this afternoon, but only had eyes for former Countdown star Carol.

The 42-year-old dance expert stunned the audience by flirting with the mother-of-two and pulling down the sleeve of her tan coloured top to look at her cleavage.


Vorderman appeared to love the attention and couldn't stop laughing and even played up to the joke by pulling both sides of her top down to emphasise her chest.

Vorderman has been married twice and had a high-profile split from Daily Mail columnist Des Kelly last year.

Such a flirt: Camp Louie laughs with Carol after attempting to look down her top on today's show

Loose Woman: Carol, who has won Rear of the Year, showed off her chest after her fumble with Louie

But now she is single, and insists she has never been happier.

The Loose Women presenter admitted she has not been on her own since her teenage years, and is thoroughly enjoying only having to look out for herself.

Deja Vu: Carol left the ITV studios today in her favourite pair of denim jeans and a khaki short-sleeved shirt

She said: 'I've always been with someone from the age of 15, I've always had a boyfriend, husband or lived with someone.

'Now's the first time in my life that I've been single and I really like it. But that's not to say I'm not dating, by the way.'

'I'm having the time of my life': Twice-married Carol Vorderman, 50, says she's happier than ever being single

Slender: Size 10 Carol, seen in London yesterday, also said since turning 50 she has learned to be happy with her body

Vorderman was married to Royal Navy officer Christopher Mather in 1985, but the pair split after 12 months.

She then married management consultant Patrick King, father of her two children, in 1990, but they separated in 2000.

Former love: Carol's most recent relationship was with Daily Mail columnist Des Kelly, from whom she split earlier this year

Vorderman's most recent relationship was with columnist Kelly, who she dated from 1999 to 2007, before the pair rekindled their relationship but split for good earlier this year.

But while Vorderman is happy with her romantic situation, her famous curves mean she's not short of offers from eager admirers.

And speaking about her figure, which earned her the title of Rear of the Year, Carol said now she has hit a half-century, she has finally learned to be happy with her body.

Family life: Carol with her mother Jean Davies and children Katie and Cameron

She said: 'Turning 50 changed me and I'm far more accepting of myself. I'm not thin, but I am a size 10. I go in at the middle and very much out at the bottom and top.

'And now I think, "Well, that's how I am". Does my bum look big in this? The answer is always yes, But now I don't try to fight what's not going to change.'

There's my boy! Orlando Bloom looked delighted to be reunited with son Flynn as he held him up in the air and then gave him a kiss


Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom are definitely a jetsetting couple, spending time travelling around the world for various work commitments.

But one of the downsides of being such a famous couple is that they have to split their time with their eight-month-old son Flynn.

So it was no surprise Orlando Bloom couldn't hide his joy as he was reunited with Flynn at Heathrow Airport in London after Miranda returned with her son from a trip to America and Europe.

Come here! Orlando couldn't hide his joy at being reunited with his little boy, and pulled the baby in for a huge hug

Work and pleasure: Miranda and family are resident in Paris for Fashion Week

Delighted to seen his bonny baby, Orlando playfully lifted Flynn, who looked cute in a striped all-in-one, into the air, causing the baby to burst into laughter.

Bringing him back down to his level, Orlando pulled little Flynn in for a big hug and kiss.

Despite only being eight months old, Flynn is already quite a little jetsetter, having already travelled to his mother's home country of Australia, and to America.

Mind the step: Orlando almost misjudges the distance to the pavement

Feeling weary? Orlando and wife Miranda Kerr looked slightly tired as they arrived in Paris yesterday

But Flynn didn't even have time to settle in London before he was being taken to France with his parents.

The family were spotted looking slightly tired as they arrived in Paris yesterday.

However, after a good night's sleep, Miranda was back in fine form, and showed off her incredible figure in a tiny leather skirt as she fitted in some retail therapy in the French capital.

Fine form: But, after a quick sleep, Miranda was back on form, showing off her long legs as she shopped in Paris

Sexy and slender: Miranda's height and slim figure were highlighted by the short skirt and high heels as she headed for Chanel

Me and the boys: Miranda was joined by a couple of male friends - possibly her stylists - on the shopping spree

The Victoria's Secret star was snapped walking through the Parisian streets with a couple of male friends, possibly her assistants, possibly her stylists.

Miranda, 28, was snapped along the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, considered to be Paris's, if not the world's, most fashionable street.

Every global fashion house has a store along the street and Miranda made the most of the fashions on offer as she popped into Chanel and was seen outside Lanvin.

Miranda is in Paris for the city's Fashion Week, which started today, and follows on from London and New York.

Which way to the car? Orlando puts a protective arm around Miranda as they make their way across the airport car park
