While the rest of Hollywood was at The 2012 Emmy Awards this weekend, The X Factor’s Simon Cowell had a different kind of accomplishment to celebrate: a hot date with Carmen Electra!

Simon has long been a fan of Carmen’s, er, talent, telling OK! Magazine that he picked Carmen, 40, as a judge on Britain’s Got Talent because “She’s got the best set of... teeth I’ve ever seen.”
Mmhmm. We’ve seen her teeth too, Cowell — a nice set indeed.

Back in March, when Carmen joined BGT, she was engaged to former Filter guitarist, Rob Patterson. But since the two broke off their engagement in May, she’s been free to date anyone she likes — including regular guys. To boot, Carmen was featured as one of the celebrity bachelorettes on the first “Ladies Night’ of FOX’s The Choice.

Simon falls somewhere in the middle of the two — although the 52-year-old isn’t a rockstar, he does sign and mentor them on The X Factor and in his role as an executive at A&R. As for whether he’s a regular guy? We’re sure no one would accuse Simon of such a thing.

According to In Touch, the two were spotted having dinner at Cecconi’s in West Hollywood. But it didn’t appear to be a business meeting — sources told the magazine “they were talking real close, and he leaned in and kissed her.” Adds the source, “They started making out!”

One thing’s for sure: this Brit sure has talent — with the ladies! Way to go, Simon!
