BIO: Simon Cowell is a popular talent show judge, television personality, and entertainment executive. Perhaps most well-known as the "mean" judge on 'American Idol," Cowell has gone on to judge shows such as 'Britain's Got Talent,' 'America's Got Talent,' 'The X Factor,' and more. Cowell is the founder and owner of Syco Entertainment, which has ownership over the 'Got Talent' franchise and other entertainment ventures. He currently judges on 'America's Got Talent,' 'America's Got Talent:Extreme,' and 'Britain's Got Talent.'

In 2020, Cowell broke three vertebrae in his back in an electric bike accident and underwent multiple surgeries. The talent mogul was forced to miss the final tapings of 'AGT' and 'BGT' due to his recovery, and did not return to television for nearly a year.

Cowell is engaged to Lauren Silverman. The two began dating in 2013 and share one son, 8-year-old Eric. Cowell was named one of the wealthiest people in the UK in 2019 with a net worth of £385 million.
