X Factor singer found dead - Cowell expresses sadness Featured

Girl group singer Simone Battle was found dead in her West Hollywood home, authorities said Saturday.

Battle gained notoriety through performances on the television show X Factor. Her five-member band — G.R.L., originally a reboot of the Pussycat Dolls — had been signed by mega-hit maker Dr. Luke.

Battle, 25, was found dead at home Friday morning, according to Los Angeles County Coroner’s Department Lt. David Smith. An autopsy will be performed Sunday, he said.

G.R.L. was originally the new lineup of the Pussycat Dolls, but the group established its own identity after signing with Grammy-nominated producer Dr. Luke.

In a written statement, G.R.L.’s record companies RCA and Kemosabe called Battle “an exceptional young talent and human being.”
Simon Cowell has paid tribute to Battle following the announcemt of her death.  

Cowell, who was the singer's mentor when she appeared on X-Factor USA, tweeted: "She was such a fun nice person. It's such a loss."
