AMERICA’S Got Talent fans rejoiced as judge Simon Cowell made his comeback to the show after his bike crash.
The 61-year-old’s return shocked the fellow judges as he returned in casual shorts attire.
Simon returned to AGT on Tuesday following his hiatus
He added: “And now, I am proud to announce the triumphant return of THE Simon Cowell.”
The judges weren’t the only people shocked by Simon’s return, as fans took to Twitter to share how excited they are that Simon is back.
One person wrote: “I’m glad Simon is doing well. He has a fair amount of metal in his back now apparently, that accident sounded gnarly.”
Another fan added: “A FREAKING CROWD AND THE SIMON COWELL IS BACK!”
Others reacted to Simon’s shorts, as one person wrote: “Simon Cowell wearing shorts is wigging me out way too f**king much right now. It’s like seeing the pope in a tank top. Not saying Simon Cowell is the pope, but that would make you stop and say ‘wtf? is that the pope in a ‘Saturday is for the boys’ tank?”
An additional AGT viewer wrote: “Simon in shorts???? they’re nice.”
Simon was almost left paralyzed when he fell from his electric bike at his Malibu home last year, which forced him to take a hiatus from the competition show.
He broke three vertebrae, and just missed his spinal cord by a centimeter, in the horrendous fall.
The star fell backwards and smashed down on to a concrete floor in front of his horrified son Eric, six, and partner Lauren Silverman’s teenage son Adam from a previous relationship.
The star was rushed to Providence Saint John’s hospital in Santa Monica, where he underwent his surgery.
Simon later confessed to fans that he had not read the instruction manual before trying out his new toy.
While breaking his silence, Simon tweeted at the time: “Some good advice…If you buy an electric trail bike, read the manual before you ride it for the first time.
“I have broken part of my back. Thank you to everyone for your kind messages..”
The former American Idol judge added: “And a massive thank you to all the nurses and doctors. Some of the nicest people I have ever met. Stay safe everyone.”
