The 58-year-old was joined by his partner Lauren Silverman and their son four-year-old Eric as well as Lauren’s son Adam, who she welcomed with former spouse Andrew Silverman, at the star-studded ceremony which took place on Wednesday in downtown Hollywood.
Stars including Leona Lewis, Kelly Clarkson, One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson and America’s Got Talent judges Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel were at the glamorous event to support Cowell.
Speaking at the star-studded event, the celebrity television host said: “I was a massive fan of American television, American movies, when I was growing up.
“I remember the first time I came to Hollywood, a long time ago and thinking it was the most magical place. And now I’m looking down at this, it’s so surreal.”
