American Idol judge Simon Cowell has continued to savage high-profile pop artists by now aiming a broadside at Ronan Keating and Phil Collins.

The outspoken music svengali has slammed Madonna, Robbie Williams and Blue's Duncan James in the past week just as he dishes out damning critiques as a judge on the hit TV talent show - and now he's turned his acid-tongue on Keating and Collins.

He says, "I've heard Ronan Keating is writing his own material. Goodbye, Ronan Keating!

"When was the last time Phil Collins wrote a good song? Ten years ago. His recent stuff is rubbish."
