It looks like a contestant got the better of Simon Cowell during the auditions for the upcoming season of Britain's Got Talent.

The talent that worked pretty well on Cowell was the ability to hypnotise. "The talent at hand was the ability to hypnotize and it totally worked as Simon actually fell face forward onto the judging table," reports Hollywood Life.

However, that's not even the extraordinary part. The hypnotist was reportedly a dog!

"Simon, 55, might not have believed in the pooch's potential to stun because he got up on the performance stage and went toe to toe with the German Spitz named Princess," states the website report.

According to News 24, the first few minutes following the act, Cowell seemed fine but when he returned to his seat at the judging table, he told fellow judges Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams that he wasn't feeling too well. Soon after, he put his head on the table for a few moments.

Princess was then summoned back to help Cowell recover (along with the help of her owner Krystyna Lennon). A source who works on the show said, "it was the freakiest moment we've ever had."

The HL report goes on to reveal that Cowell wasn't the only member of the show who fell under the hypnodog's influence.

"Series hosts Ant & Dec both took the plunge and stared into the pup's eyes, and were creepily unable to remember the number seven while they attempted to count to ten."
