Facebook TwitterIt’s no secret that we’ve seen a much gentler side to Simon Cowell recently. The TV personality admits that is due to him now being a father. Here in the USA we just saw Simon as a judge on the latest season of NBC’s America’s Got Talent. In the video above from the UK series The X Factor, we see yet again the softer side of Simon Cowell. When a contestant goes before Simon and the other two judges, Cowell is honest and tells the 17 year-old that he feels she has been hiding behind a mask. He asks her to come back later. As we see next, the aspiring singer returns later that evening with much less makeup and proceeds to amaze Simon with her performance.
