The other night on the X Factor USA they did a tribute to the sandy hook shootings and as you could see by the judges and studio audience members it was very emotional.
One judge who it affected the most was Simon Cowell as he said that it was the ‘hardest thing he has ever had to do on the TV’.
After the show Simon said:
“I would say it was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do on TV in my life. We made the decision and decided that we were going to introduce it like we did, and then it hits you what you are about to announce and what it is about. I think anybody in my position would have been the same, and I think it was much harder for the singers. For them to have to sing that lyric … it was a miracle they did it, because it really affected them. But it was the right thing to do.”
In Madonna‘s MDNA show she makes out to shoot members of the audience
She was performing the show in Denver, Colorado on Thursday. But back in the summer 13 people where killed by a gunman so you would think that Madonna would think and not use the guns for this show but now she got them out.
Her doing this caused a LOT of controversy over her actions
One concert goer said:
“We’re dancing and all of a sudden people started realizing what the song was. We all just stood there. Everybody who was around me all had shock on their face. I heard a lot of ‘wows.’”
Peter Burns who lost someone due that the massacre in the summer also talked saying:
“You could see people kinda looking at each other. I heard the word ‘Colorado,’ you know, ‘Aurora,’ ‘shooting.’ You could hear people talking about it and it was little bit unsettling. I saw two or three people get up and grab their stuff and actually leave their seats.”
But of cores all madg’es team where behind her as he spokes person Liz Rosenberg defends Madonna saying:
“It’s like taking out the third act of Hamlet.”

On Tuesday Christian Bale flew out to Aurora, CO at the request of the families of those brutalizedby Dark Knight Rises mass-murderer James Holmes.
He visited the Medical Center of Aurora South, and is apparently acting on his own behalf and NOT as a representative for Warner Bros.
So great to see they are true heros thats all they are.
