'Mr. Nasty' Simon Cowell reveals softer side during X Factor USA audition

New York, Sept 26 (ANI): Simon Cowell showed his soft side softer side during the auditions of 'The X Factor USA' Season 3.

The usually sharp-tongued 53-year old music mogul surprised audiences when he expressed his fatherly affection for a contestant's young son, and gave the contestant another chance to impress the panel after the contestant gave a disappointing performance, BIG CBS LOVE reported.

The Syco boss commented that he was reminded of his unborn son upon meeting the contestant's son.
