Britain's Got Talent judges are confronted by a singing and dancing Simon Cowell in tonight's edition of the show - as a man wears a mask.
Simon Cowell gets a soaking from fellow Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden after the pair disagree about a pair of contestants.
Simon Cowell reduced a contestant to tears in tonight's Britain's Got Talent - but not in his usual manner.
Simon Cowell has been filming the audition episodes of Britain's Got Talent this week and has been surprised - and shocked - by some of the wannabe stars:
Have been filming britains got talent this week. Some great auditions. And some of the worst I have seen including a dancing raccoon.From @SimonCowell on Twitter:

I'm very sad to hear about Michael passing away.
He's become a very good friend over the years and someone whose company I have always really enjoyed.
Laughter was never far away when Michael was around and he is someone who the more I got to know, the fonder I got of him.
I am sure there are a lot of other people who, like me, will really miss him.
Simon Cowell has taken to Twitter to announce that "The X Factor USA" will return next season.
However, he has yet to say whether judges Britney Spears, Demi Lovato and L.A. Reid will return to the FOX show.
It was important for you to be the first to know because it is thanks to your support and enthusiasm we are coming backFrom @SimonCowell on Twitter:
I want to personally thank each and every one of you, it is hugely appreciated and never forgottenFrom @SimonCowell on Twitter:
Simon Cowell's production firm Syco is working on a programme featuring talented dogs which is to be called Take The Lead.
Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon is considered favourite to host the programme which is expected to be screened over the festive period.
Ashleigh and Pudsey, who won this year's Britain's Got Talent, are likely to be on the judging panel.
A source confirmed they are working on the one-off programme for ITV and said it was likely to take the form more of a variety show than a talent contest.
Former Westlife star Nicky Byrne says he can handle any criticism the Strictly Come Dancing judges throw at him - after working with X Factor supremo Simon Cowell for so long.
The Irish singer, whose group split earlier this year after a 14-year career during which he was signed to one of Cowell's record labels, insisted he has developed a thick skin after working with TV's Mr Nasty for years.
"I've been signed to Simon Cowell for 14 years so I know exactly what it's like sitting in an office getting criticism.
"But this scenario is different - we don't really know this kind of dancing. They're the pros and you take it and then you walk away and that's how you learn."
