Simon Cowell accused of 'ripping off' Gamu Nhengu on The X Factor USA!


X Factor boss Simon Cowell has been accused of 'ripping off' Gamu Nhengu's take on classic hit Walking On Sunshine for one of his artists on the US show. Gamu impressed Simon and the other judges when she first performed the track at her original audition last year.

The teenager, whose rejection caused headlines when Cheryl Cole refused to take her through to the live shows, changed the song to impress Cowell.

And it seems like the performance was pretty memorable, with Simon seemingly copying it for his act 13-year-old Rachel Crow on last night's second live X Factor show.
