The Video Simon Cowell Just Couldn't Bury

7/31/2009 5:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

That guy in the blue doggy suit is a young Simon Cowell -- and this is the video his buddy Nigel Lythgoe didn't think we'd ever find. Check and mate.

Simon Cowell: Click to watch
Nigel challenged TMZ to uncover the "horrible" video of the "Idol" judge singing -- and did we ever. Here's Cowell waaaay back in '82 on the popular U.K. television show "Top of the Pops" performing as his barking alter-ego "Wonderdog."

Interracial facial    

Simon Coward is a latent Friend Of Dotty. He has all these posters of macho men plastered on his mansion walls but in American Idol his judgment is blatantly biased towards effeminate males, sissie boys and wimpy emos. Sure, Sinatra is his idol. And Andrew Dice Clay is his favorite comedian. LOL!

you must stupid    

Great job finding a hilarious video on Simon, but I'm pretty sure this isn't the correct one since there is zero singing. Nigel specifically said there's a video of him SINGING, right?

Can anyone do the math on how old Simon was in '82? I'd have to imagine he'd be a teenager, right? He's not that old now. It's weird how his voice sounds exactly the same today. There's no way that's from 1982.

Another point of trivia here...

The guy introducing Simon on Top of the Pops is Peter Powell - Simon's manager.
