American Idol Picture of the Day: Simon Cowell Embraced by Elton John

at . Comments

Congratulations, of course, are in order for Jennifer Hudson. She walked away with an Academy Award last night.

But Simon Cowell didn't go home empty handed.

The American Idol judge received a VERY warm welcome from Sir Elton John ... one that included a kiss on the cheek.

We wonder how Cowell's girlfriend, Terri Seymour, feels about this greeting. We also wonder if Idol fans will even think twice about such a picture.

After all, Antonella Barba photos have pretty much dominated their imaginations over the last week.
