Zeroes For Heroes: Simon Cowell Fights On The Front Lines

by | 6th, October 2008

WHAT better way to salute the British armed forces than by instructing 12 wannabe singers and budding celebs to sing a warbling version of Mariah Carey’s Hero?

Answer: none.

The Sun features the X Factor’s first ever song for charity, and hears Simon Cowell say that:

“It’s too good an opportunity to pass up.”

Indeed, even in war there is opportunity for spivs, arms manufacturers and entertainers to get rich and famous. For Vera Lynn, read four-piece girl group Bad Lashes.

It’s That Man Again:

“It is such a great way to pay something back to the men and women who give it so much for this country.”

And not only the X Factor contestants, like girl band Girlband, “full-time London mum” Rachel Hylton and Alexandra Burke (“Early performances made Cheryl Cole cry with joy”), but soldiers, too.

Take it away Our Brave Boys and Girls:

Lord knows Dreeeeems are hard too followowowow
Burr dunt leert anywone tear dem awayayaya
Hold orn
There will beeee tomomorrow
In tiyme yoool find da way…

And the soldiers realise what it is they’ve been fighting for…
