We all know what it's like when your pals are taking a group selfie and you're not exactly picture-ready. The same thing seems to have happened to music mogul and America's Got Talent judge Simon Cowell - and the result is hilarious.

A behind-the-scenes snap from the upcoming 16th season was posted by Howie Mandel on Instagram with fellow judges Sofia Vegara, Heidi Klum and host Terry Crews. People were quick to notice that Simon's appearance in the corner of the picture makes him look like a 'cardboard cut-out.'

Simon will be returning to America's Got Talent after breaking his back in a bike accident at his Malibu home in August. He had to undergo a six-hour surgery and has largely kept out of the spotlight during his recovery.

"Some good advice... if you buy an electric trail bike, read the manual before you ride it for the first time.," he wrote. "I have broken part of my back."

"Thank you to everyone for your kind messages. And a massive thank you to all the nurses and doctors. Some of the nicest people I have ever met."

Welcome back Simon!
