‘AGT’ Judge Simon Cowell Won’t Stop Tweeting About Parmesan Song During 2022 Auditions


The America’s Got Talent The season 17 premiere was nothing short of entertaining. Apart from the saxophonist Avery Dixon win the first Golden Buzzer thanks to AGT host Terry Crewsanother historic moment happened thanks to Simon Cowell.

On Tuesday night’s episode of the NBC contest show, the singer-songwriter Ben Lapidus performed his original song “Parmesan cheese.” After hearing an impassioned ode to the dairy product (with lyrics like “I always want more parmesan but I’m ashamed”), Simon was the first AGT judge to press his red X button. “I hate fucking parmesan cheese. It’s disgusting,” he said later on the show.

Howie Mandel, Sofia Vergara and Heidi Klum then followed suit giving Ben a total of four Xs. While the AGT the judges seemed to be on the same page, the live audience erupted in roaring cheers. In a turn of events, Heidi accepted the sentiment of the song and called on Ben to perform an encore. But Simon was less than pleased and turned away from the AGT 2022 Candidate. Unlike previous seasons, he was eventually convinced to join the singing crowd and he made a shocking decision.

“You know what? I want to kill you now because I can’t get this ‘I want more parmesan cheese’ out of my brain,” Simon told Ben. “Take the X out. I’m giving you a yes.

That’s right – he reversed his rejection. With that, Heidi and Sofia did the same for the 29-year-old from Doylestown, Pennsylvania. After a five-minute performance and plenty of cheese talk, Ben won over three of the judges. According Yahoo EntertainmentIt’s a first AGT the story.

“The producers tell me that we don’t remember anything like this happening before,” a source from the show told the outlet. “There were never four Xs given, three of them being then reversed and turned into yes.”

Reacting to the podcast sound engineer earning a spot in the next round, AGT fans expressed on social media how amused they were by the act. Also, many couldn’t get over Simon’s turnaround.

“Bravo Ben!! So proud of you. You melted Simon’s heart with your corny goodness,” someone wrote in the YouTube comments section. “It’s amazing how Simon stood in front of the audience and led the singing [of the] Parmesan cheese [Song] in the end 😂😂😂 it killed me. And it shows how much Simon has mellowed over the years doing this show,” another added. “Simon has been so funny lately I love it,” said another fan.

Simon took to Twitter to share a hilarious GIF of himself hearing the song for the first time. “This was absolutely the BEST #AGT audition ever,” he subtitled it. “I don’t know what happened, but this song is now stuck in my brain and will probably never go away. And now this is my gift to you! 🧀.” The fun image was complemented by overlaid text that read, “People want more Parmesan cheese.”

“I didn’t like it, I HATED it, but then I loved it! #AGT BEST WORST Song of the Season!” Simon added in a follow-up tweet.

Hey, if a non-parmesan lover like Simon can get behind this lead, so can we!
