Simon Cowell promotes America’s Got Talent in California

Simon Cowell looked worlds away from his typical clean-cut style as he attended the NBCUniversal Summer Press Day in California on Wednesday. 

The music mogul, 58, was joined by fellow America’s Got Talent judges Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel at the event as they promoted the upcoming season 13. 

Walking the red carpet together the group seemed in good spirits on the outing, with Simon sticking with his signature style by donning a jumper and jeans.

Meanwhile, Mel, 42, looked sensational in a scarlet satin dress that showcased her lean legs, boosting her frame with a pair of strappy snakeskin heels. 

Supermodel Heidi, 44, also dazzled in a cream crochet jumpsuit that skimmed over her sensational figure whilst she posed up a storm for snaps.  

America’s Got Talent is due to premiere season 13 on May 29, 2018 at 8pm ET, and the team have been busy promoting the series with a host of appearances.

All the work appears to have taken its toll on Simon, however, who admitted that he won’t be quitting smoking after he was spotted last month puffing away between filming AGT.   

He was seen lighting up two years after he revealed plans to try vaping to ditch his smoking habit, adding last year that his health became a priority after a nasty fall forced him to miss two X Factor live shows.

Yet speaking to The Mirror he admitted he wasn’t going to quit after all, reasoning: ‘If I tried to cut out cigarettes completely, I would have a real problem: too boring. It’s the same with drinking. I’m pretty good at cutting back when I need to.’ 

Simon told Now magazine in November that he had gone from 80 cigarettes a day to just the two, after vowing to cut down the sake of his four-year-old son Eric.

Last month, the legendary judge said his health became a top priority after a nasty fall last year which left him both hospital-bound and unable to attend The X Factor live shows.   

He said on ITV’s Lorraine: ‘I’m alright. In a weird way it was a wake up call because it wasn’t the end of the world. It was a bit embarrassing…

‘I will never hear a bad word about the NHS. It’s like having an MOT, they do every possible test. I was probably overtired, to be honest.

‘I feel much better this year, I’m not having so many meetings or late night calls, it’s a bit more of a balance.’

The straight-talking star revealed he was prioritising his girlfriend Lauren Silverman and their young son Eric.

He said: ‘I look at things through Eric’s eyes, I want to spend more time with him, luckily he loves the shows so he comes down all the time.’

Quizzed whether he’d like Eric to take over his music and television empire in future, Simon’s eyes lit up.

‘One million percent, I would love him to take over. He’s really confident! When he comes down he loves being in the gallery.’

Last October, Simon left fans concerned when he was rushed to hospital after his late night fall.

The music mogul had been going to get a cup of milk to help him sleep when he fell – leading him to be stretchered out of his home in a neck brace.

It was believed Simon was at home alone, as his girlfriend Lauren had been over in the US.

The Syco owner was then forced to pull out of two X Factor live shows, with Alesha Dixon taking his place on the panel.
