Simon Cowell Meets Contestant Simon Cowell on "Britain's Got Talent"

Nino Munoz/FOX (LONDON) -- Simon Cowell came face-to-face with his namesake during the taping of an audition for Britain's Got Talent over the weekend and voted against allowing contestant Simon Cowell to advance, according to The Sun.

The British newspaper reports when unemployed cab driver Simon Cowell, 37, walked on stage at the audition in Belfast and introduced himself, the 57-year-old judge and music mogul replied, "I've always wanted to meet me."

The Sun reports cab driver Cowell replied, “I’ve always wanted to meet me too, although I didn’t think I’d be this frightened.”

Cab driver Cowell then sang Diana Ross’ 1991 hit “When You Tell Me That You Love Me,” which he dedicated to his mother.  Judge Simon Cowell said afterward, “I never thought I would say this -- Simon Cowell, it’s a ‘No’.”

It's not known how the other three judges on the BGT panel voted, so fans of the show will have to wait until the show returns in the spring to find out if cab driver Cowell made the cut.
