Simon hasn't been the one pushing Carly non stop since day 1. That's been Randy and Paula and Randy was the one whose label signed her way back when. Simon has been reasonably straight up with all the contestants with a couple of exceptions. It's very interesting, when you're watching for it, to see all the subtle and not so subtle manipulation they do with contestants they like and don't like. From the body language of Ryan Seacrest to the amount of stage discussion and interaction to the placement in the performance order to the pre-written commentary written before they even perform on stage and now even comments made to the press and on Oprah.
