Simon Cowell has criticised Lou Reed for not allowing Susan Boyle to sing 'Perfect Day' on America's Got Talent.

Boyle is said to have walked off the set of the talent show after the former Velvet Underground singer banned her from performing his song.

He later denied the snub, citing clearance issues for Boyle not singing the track.

Speaking on BBC Radio 2, Cowell said: "She was supposed to be on America's Got Talent this week. We've flown her over and she is going to perform 'Perfect Day' by Lou Reed.

"Two hours before she is going to perform it we get a phone call. Lou Reed will not allow her to sing 'Perfect Day'.

"This is so petty, so pathetic. Loads of people have covered this song. This is a fantastic version. He's now saying, 'If I'd have known, I'd have given permission.'

"Well Lou, if you're listening: Do we have permission to put the song on next week?"
