The Softer Side of Simon

Simon Cowell was on the set of 'EXTRA' yesterday with an unexpected guest on his lap -- a pug puppy!

Although it's not his pup, the pug won over Simon faster than any 'American Idol' winner. The notorious hard-shelled Cowell melted as the puppy warmed up to him, hanging out on his lap for the entire interview.

See the softer side of Simon come out as he gushes over the baby pup.
