Every week, millions tune in to watch the American Idol contestants perform on stage, but only a select few get to go behind the scenes. After six seasons of secrecy, Simon's using his all-access pass to take Oprah's cameras on an exclusive backstage tour!

On show days, Simon drives to the Hollywood set in style. His car, a Bugatti Veyron, is one of the most expensive, powerful automobiles on the market.

Once Idol's most-feared judge arrives on set, he heads to his trailer. Though it's not as luxurious as his car, it's equipped with all the comforts of home. Simon's fridge is stocked with lemon-lime Perrier, as well as milk for his English breakfast tea.

This home-away-from-home also has a bedroom and shower. "If I'm feeling very diva-ish, I'll lie down before the show," he says. Just before he's due at the judges' table, Simon says he takes a shower to wake himself up.
