British music mogul Simon Cowell has a harsh warning for ALICIA KEYS - he believes his reality show American Idol will kill her career.

Cowell, who serves as a judge on American Idol alongside Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson, admits that after three years of auditioning wannabe singers, he's become extremely fed up of hearing Keys' 2001 hit FALLIN' - and music itself.

He says, "I hate music now. I truthfully despise it. I honestly loathe it.

"When somebody walks into the audition room you can just tell before it even starts that it's gonna be a monstrous audition and you've gotta sit through this song. I ask the question, 'What are you gonna sing?' Fallin' by Alicia Keys, that's the song!'

"It's like a dark cloud going over the sun when I hear it mentioned because it's such an earnest song and it just goes on and on and on. I think our show is gonna kill her career. I can't hear it anymore."

Cowell, who has already banned contestants from performing R Kelly's I BELIEVE I CAN FLY, is also considering putting a block on Fallin'.
