London: Music mogul Simon Cowell, who was recently honoured with a special award by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), says it was his happiest moment ever.

The "Britain`s Got Talent" judge who introduced "American Idol" to the US television, was honoured for his outstanding contribution to TV industry, reports

"This is a genuine honour. I wasn`t expecting it because it`s very grown-up here. I have the most talented people with me working on the shows. This award is more deserving to them than it is to me. I appreciate your genius because you make me look good," said Cowell.

"One of my happiest memories as a kid was when my dad came home with a TV set when I was five. That was the best moment of my life, so to stand here getting an award for making TV shows, it`s the happiest feeling in my life," he added.
