In a sweet behind-the-scenes clip, Eric went crazy hitting the buzzer as his usually cheeky dad shared his softer side and joked around with his son.

“Are you trying to do my job? What do I do?” Cowell asked as Eric hit the buzzer again and again. “That is my job!”

“Just like your daddy!” Heidi Klum joked.

Cowell is all in for “AGT” but recently talked to "Extra" about the possibility of returning to the reboot of “American Idol” set to premiere in 2018.

“I was asked to do it, and the answer is no,” he said. “I have no interest. My memories are when we first started. It was a different time with Randy [Jackson], Ryan [Seacrest] and Paula [Abdul]. You can’t recreate that.”
