Simon Cowell, the judge on American Idol, caused concern among fans after he appeared unrecognisable in a video that he posted on Twitter.
The clip was then deleted after users criticized his appearance. Many people compared him to a waxwork of a woman named “Madame Tussauds.”
The 63-year-old TV personality had urged people to contact him to audition for the upcoming season of Britain’s Got Talent.
In the video, Cowell stated that he always says that two or three minutes can change a person’s life. He then urged people to contact him to apply for the upcoming season of Britain’s Got Talent.
The most striking part of the video was the appearance of the British TV personality, who sported an unusually shiny face and several white teeth that were almost luminescent.
Cowell’s fans were quick to react to his appearance. Some of them posted photos of him with an earlier photo of him, which showed him with a more natural-looking face.
Others noted that he looked like a waxwork of himself. One joked that the London branch of the museum known as Madame Tussauds unveiled a new statue of Cowell.
Some noted that Cowell’s face looked like that of George Michael, who was a character in the movie Goldeneye.
Others said that he looked like he melted. It’s not clear why he suddenly changed his appearance, though he has been vocal about wanting to do so in the past.
In addition to a 2018 facelift, Cowell had also undergone various other procedures, such as teeth veneers and facial treatments.
In April, he told Page Six that he had stopped getting cosmetic procedures, such as the use of fillers and Botox, as it made him look like he was in a horror movie.
He said that he had gone too far in his appearance, and he admitted that he didn’t realize that he had done anything wrong until he saw a photo of himself.
He also claimed that he has no use for fillers in his face.
