'American Idol': Ellen DeGeneres video shows sexual tension with Simon Cowell

Ellen-Degeneres-Simon-Cowell-American-Idol-320.jpgWe knew it wasn't our mind playing tricks on us when we noticed the flirtation between Ellen DeGeneres and Simon Cowell this week on " American Idol."

DeGeneres came clean on " The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and shared unaired footage showing some major flirtation between the two "Idol" judges.

Check out the "deleted scene" below:

Hah! All kidding aside, Cowell definitely seemed happy to have DeGeneres on the judging panel. Did he really lay his head on her shoulder?

Do you think Cowell's having a better time with DeGeneres than he did with Paula Abdul?
