First singing and now rapping?! Simon Cowell, 53, is doing quite a bit of performing on The X Factor this season. This time around, he and his fellow female judges aired a spoof music video on Wednesday night's show.
At around 5:50 minutes into the clip, Kelly Rowland, Demi Lovato and Cowell begin to cover the rap song You Better Ask Me To Dance that was written and performed by former contestants Second Hand High.
When first performed by the rap duo onstage, the crowd went wild and Rowland even got to her feet to dance. However, that wasn't enough to get them to the next level. All three judges said no to the group, with Cowell saying of the performance as the crowd booed, "I think you should change the name of the group to 'Deluded'. The song was terrible."
Though Rowland also said no, she was a fan of the song, saying, "It's weird but I kind of liked the song."
This then led to the three judges going into a rendition of the track. Also of note, the dad-to-be's ex-fiance and makeup artist Mezhgan Hussainy is featured in the video.
What do you think of the music video spoof?
