They didn’t give this look a golden buzzer.
Former American Idol judge Simon Cowell sparked concern from fans after he became unrecognizable in a Twitter video – just months after he said he was done with Botox. The clip has since been deleted as trolls gutted his appearance and many likened him to a Madame Tussauds wax figure.
In the eyebrow-raising clip released Thursday, the 63-year-old TV presenter encouraged people to contact him to audition for Britain’s Got Talent, the British equivalent of his popular America’s Got Talent competition.
“I always say on this show, two or three minutes can change your life,” Cowell explained. “And it has. And maybe this time it will be you.”
He added: “So please audition now for next year’s season and I look forward to meeting you.”
The most striking part of the clip, however, was the Brit’s appearance, which sported a particularly glossy face, almost brilliantly white teeth and seemingly enhanced facial features, which many Twitter commenters accused of hinting at some sort of cosmetic procedure.
Imagine: trolls were quick to tear up Cowell’s expression.
“Um, can we talk about Simon Cowell for a minute?” said a concerned fan with photos juxtaposing a still from his recent promo with a previous photo of the talent show icon, in which he had a fuller, more natural-looking face.
“Madame Tussauds has unveiled their new wax figure of Simon Cowell.” joked another.
one Twitter joke snipped“Simon Cowell’s face looks like George Michael’s corpse is a playable character in Goldeneye.”
“Simon Cowell is the son of Herman Munster” joked one commenter alongside a photo comparing Cowell to the Frankenstein-esque “Adams Family” character.
A Twitter roaster compared Cowell to the infamous 2012 botched restoration of a Jesus fresco. Even Domino’s Pizza UK couldn’t resist trying Leather-faced talent critic who writes: “When you pull a Simon Cowell out of the freezer.”
Other Social media comedian said it looked like Cowell had skinned someone alive and was wearing “her face” like Leatherface from the classic horror film Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
Only a few social media watchdogs seemed concerned there might be something more serious at play here: “Simon Cowell doesn’t look well,” one fan tweeted. “There is something wrong.”
The Post has reached out to Cowell’s rep for comment on his latest viral moment.
Meanwhile, the reason for Cowell’s shocking face remains unclear, but he has been vocal about changing his appearance in the past. His cosmetic procedures included botox, a 2018 facelift, a slew of facials and dental veneers following his spooky 2020 e-bike crash.
However, Cowell claimed in April that he was done with Botox injections and fillers because it made him “look like something out of a horror movie.”
“I cut it down, let’s put it that way,” the infamous curmudgeon told Page Six in November. “Everything in moderation.”
“There was a phase where I might have gone a little too far,” Cowell added. “I saw a picture of me from ‘before’ the other day and didn’t even recognize myself.”
He claimed: “Enough was enough. There is now no filler at all on my face. Zero.”
