Late night host Jimmy Kimmel poked fun at American Idol judge Randy Jackson when he compared him to The X Factor's L.A. Reid!

As Jimmy revealed a side-by-side photo of both stars wearing matching glasses, he asked, "What do you think about this? This is you -- and then Simon goes and hires this guy. He even stole your glasses! What's happening there?" OK! NEWS: AMERICAN IDOL WINNER KELLY CLARKSON SET TO MENTOR CONTESTANTS ON THE VOICE Quick on his feet, Randy responded, "That's my boy, L.A. Reid. I've known him a long time. He's really talented. L.A.'s my friend. Maybe, who knows? But Simon just loved me that much that he missed me." OK!

After showing another picture, this one of the guys flashing a peace signal, he added, "Look, he's even stealing your hand signal -- that's unacceptable." Randy exclaimed, "I've got to talk to him about that!" Check out the reference below about four minutes into the clip.
