    Supposedly raised $15 million so far.

    Simon Cowell's personal compensation from the show this year  $36 million.

    Producers wouldn't give Paula a raise.

    Anyone find any hypocrisy in paying producers and simon such unbelievable sums of money then begging the public to send money for whatever "cause" they dream up.

    I wonder what the compensation is for Guest Performers.

    And I have no problem with people who want to donate... I just find the platform a little disingenuous.

    1 in 5 American Children are living below the poverty level... I'm all for helping them.

      I don't care what people make, you should get what the market is willing to pay.

      Regardless, 15 million in 2 hours is a pretty good result and I'll bet most of that money will reach the desired target, which is more than I can say for any government program.
