America's Got Talent star Simon Cowell's got a brand new face - and it looks a bit frightening.

The 59 year old former music exec/tv producer has been a judge on the British TV talent competition series Pop Idol, The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent, and the American TV talent competition shows American Idol, The X Factor and America's Got Talent. Cowell is the principal, founder and chief executive of the British entertainment company Syco.

So he's made a fortune on television.

But he looks a lot different than the way that we remember him. This is what Simon used to look like:


But the Idol host recently got a series of unspecified plastic surgery operations on his face - and he looks almost completely different.

Here's his new face:

As you can imagine folks all over social media are upset with his change in appearance. Here are some comments from his fans:

He has the eyes of a corpse

Dude looking like fire marshal bill on in living color

He looks like one those characters you have to have conversations with in a rpg video game

Bet the surgeon was out of the country before Cowell woke up.

Simon Cowell might be preparing to turn 60 in October, but he's feeling better than he has in years. The America's Got Talent judge surprised fans when he showed up to a live show looking slimmed down this week. Cowell has lost 20 pounds since 2017, when a health scare prompted him to make some serious changes to his diet and lifestyle.

After low blood pressure caused him to faint and fall down the stairs, Cowell knew he had to be more proactive about his own health, especially now that he is a dad. "Sometimes we get a reminder that we’re not invincible and this was certainly mine. It was a huge shock," he said to The Sun in 2017. "They think I fainted because I had low blood pressure and so I have got to really take good care of myself to sort that out. After all, I am a dad and have more responsibility than ever."
