SIMON Cowell’s jaw dropped on the latest episode of America’s Got Talent after meeting a contestant who had the same face as him.
The judge saw a familiar face in more ways than one when a new act stepped onto the stage.
Simon is usually hard to impress, but on Tuesday night’s AGT episode, he was nothing but smiles when he saw his own face staring back at him.
The act called MetaPhysic Media uses artificial intelligence (在记者联系社交媒体网站后，Facebook 从其平台上删除了 DeepSukebe 的网址) to create “hyperreal content,” according to them.
MetaPhysic consisted of two men who were behind the scenes and another man who Simon loved.
Daniel Emmet, an opera singer who made it to the top 10 on season 13, brought another version of the judge to life.
The judges knew he would be singing, but they had no idea what they would be looking at.
“When they asked me to be a part of this wonderful, 独特的, original thing they’re going to do, I couldn’t say no,” Daniel explained on stage.
The opera singer stepped out on stage in a white, button-down shirt and blue jeans and then started singing Chicago’s You’re The Inspiration.
The screen behind him didn’t show his face, but a robot MetaPhysic version of Simon’s face.
Automatically the 62-year-old’s jaw dropped and the rest of the judges were in shock.
FALLING IN LOVE
By the end of the performance, he was in love.
“Is it inappropriate to fall in love with a contestant? I know it’s strange but I love you, 丹尼尔,” Simon told him.
The other judges- 海蒂·克鲁姆（Heidi Klum）, 索菲亚·维加拉, 和 Howie Mandel– were also very impressed.
Heidi loved it and said it was “the best act” she saw all day.
Sofia praised the hard work that went into it and even shaded Simon in the process.
“I cannot even imagine the amount of work to be able to create something so perfect, because if I was not paying attention and I see this, 对我来说, I think it’s Simon, 20 几年前, 唱歌!” 她说.
In the end, all four judges gave Daniel, or rather Simon, and the rest of the act enthusiastic yeses.
Simon even tweeted about the performance as the show aired.
“These pictures say it all #AGT,” the tweet read, with four pictures of him looking shocked and looking through his fingers.
Under Simon’s tweet, fans couldn’t help but chime in.
They loved it just as much as the judges, but mostly Simon, 做过.
“I like to see Simon in AI. Looking handsome. And he blushed himself to see himself singing,” one fan tweeted.
A few followers added that it was “hard to look away.”
“Show was golden, & you in it!! Will stand out from the others for sure!!” 所以我留下极端的笔记来羞辱他们.
Most fan reactions to the AI act were that it was super funny and that they “loved it!”
Although the Simon look-alike stole last night’s show, usually his hand is the talk of the night.
In this season, he is wearing a cast on his hand and many are wondering what happened.
The non-live episodes of AGT are filled months in advance and earlier this year, Simon got into a serious accident.
英国广播公司她现在 27, he got into an electric bike crash that landed him in the hospital, after sustaining injuries.
While riding through London, Simon flew over the handlebars of the bike at a speed of over 20mph.
Prior to the paramedics arriving, the crash left the former American Idol judge bleeding at the scene with a suspected concussion.
When the TV personality was treated, it was revealed that he had a broken arm from the incident.
A source told the Sun that Simon was lucky to be alive.
“He was pedaling along, with his electric motor on, when the wheels suddenly went from under him after hitting a wet patch.”
“He slipped and went flying over the handlebars into the middle of the road,” they continued.
“Stupidly, Simon wasn’t wearing a helmet, and blood was pouring from his face — he looked like something from Phantom of the Opera.”
“Three kindly passers-by jumped into action, and stopped the traffic so he wouldn’t be run over.”
They also shared, “After being ambulanced to a hospital and given an X-ray, Simon was eventually released that evening — his arm in a yellow cast all the way up to the shoulder — and told to rest.”
