The 59 years old judge, in fact, voluntarily decided to go on stage to help out a contestant and threw himself as the offering for the daredevil challenge in front of the thousands of audience.

One of the eyewitnesses claims Simon narrowly escaped the knife thrown by Belarusian Andrei Gomonov only by a few inches, and luckily got his life saved whilst his co-judges watched him frightenedly from their seats.
As a matter of fact, not being able to collect her guts to watch the act, fellow terrified judge Amanda Holden hid her face during the act.
As per a report from the Daily Star, producers at Britain's Got Talent were horrified too when Simon volunteered to go on the stage.
Subsequently, when asked how he felt about the risky moment, Cowell described the experience as 'the scariest thing ever'.

He later expressed his confession after the audition:
"OK, so that was the scariest thing ever. I now realize how hard it is!"
Apparently, Simon himself wanted to experience as he continued:
"I really want to know what it feels like to have an axe thrown at me."
Meanwhile, apart from facing such risque performance, social media trolls criticized Cowell for his new appearance instead of talking about host Anthony McPartlin's (better known as 'Ant') come back on the show following his rehab break.
Among the critics, one included Twitter user Daft Limmy who shared his thoughts on Simon new look saying:
"Somebody needs to help Simon Cowell. It isn't funny anymore. His face is a disaster."
However, the judge seems unbothered with the trolls. He reportedly told Star:
"These are people who sit in dark rooms anonymously because they won't put their real names - which I think is cowardly - writing horrible things about you. I don't go on the message board and I don't Google myself."
The new season of Britain's Got Talent will air on ITV later this year.
