American Idol judge Simon Cowell dropped his Mr Nasty image for a skit on Saturday Night Live last night (10APR04) - by joining the show's resident comedy band.

British Cowell donned a purple cardigan and played maracas with JIMMY FALLON, Horatio Sanz, Tracy Morgan and Chris Kattan on an Easter rendition of I WISH IT WAS CHRISTMAS TODAY.

And when the 44-year-old joked he'd never been included in anything, Sanz quipped, "Is that why you're such a big jerk?" to which he replied, "That's what my therapist says."
