The music mogul should have known what was coming as moments earlier fellow judge Howie Mandel was met with the same fat after being splatted by another of the show’s judges Heidi Klum.
But as the judges enjoyed the fun of the face-splats, Simon returned to his chair with his usual deadpan expression – albeit it still covered in cream.
And he perhaps sarcastically told the contestant: “You’ve gotta take this more seriously.”
