SIMON Cowell stormed off stage after having a disagreement with Amanda Holden over the Frozen act on Britain’s Got Talent.
The judge walked out after refusing to vote Katherine, 35, and Joe O’Malley, 58, through.
Amanda declared: “That was my favourite thing of the whole day.”
She then demanded Simon listen to the crowd and five them a shot at a place in the semi-final.
But instead of being swayed by the cheering audience, Simon said: “I’ll leave it to you” and walked off.
He had earlier told the duo: “I’m not being rude but what the bloody hell was that?”

The pair had appeared on the show last year with another Disney classic.
While their singing and tap-dancing combination impressed Amanda, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon, Simon was not as easily pleased.
After Simon exited the stage, Amanda asked the audience to vote in his place.
It led to Katherine and Joe being voted through.
