Thanks to Mason's *slightly* awkward Six Chair Challenge audition we were both pretty excited and slightly terrified about his reunion with Simon. X Factor's head judge had branded Mason an "ar*ehole" after he complained about air time and Simon was left less than impressed when Mason dropped his mic before storming off stage.
It's not the ideal way you'd want your boss to remember you, but after Mason was given a second shot at The X Factor, he revealed he and Simon did finally kiss and make up. Well, make up at least!
Things had been tense between the pair, after Mason slammed the music mogul and X Factor producers for only giving him "47 seconds" of airtime. He claims other people were given a "ten minute" slot, yet his was seriously cut down despite being one of the "best" auditions on the show.
When Simon told the hopeful he had no right to insult his show, Mason's attitude spurred the 55-year-old on to call him a "complete ar*ehole", before telling him he was "five seconds away" from being thrown off stage.
Luckily, though, security wasn't needed and Mason chose to go of his own accord, slamming his mic down on his exit and losing himself a seat in Nick Grimshaw's final six for Judges' Houses.
Now, Mason has reassured us that there isn't any bad blood between himself and Simon.
He told The Sun recently: "[Simon] rang me. We had a little conversation, like, 'There's no hard feelings there, there's no bad blood, no-one's upset'. Respect from artist to artist. He's the big man, the big boss."
Mason's second chance in the competition comes after Tom Bleasby shockingly decided to quit The X Factor.
Despite being the first of the boys to win a seat from Nick, Tom decided to drop out of the competition after he felt he wasn't "vocally ready" for the rest of the process.
Shortly after his exit, Nick revealed he had chosen to bring Mason back. His choice was a controversial one after Mason's last audition and many fans of the show were quick to criticise Grimmy on his decision.
He, however, stuck with his guns and said: "Yes he was difficult at the 6 Chair Challenge, but people with an artistic temperament can be difficult. He's talented and in previous auditions excited us Judges. Sometimes a challenge is interesting."
Mason has since performed for Nick and his celebrity guest Mark Ronson at Judges' Houses and will find out at the weekend if he has secured a place in the live shows or not.
The X Factor continues Saturday 24 October on ITV.
