X-Factor USA Gets the Axe
After 3 seasons, rumor has it, Simon Cowell has left the X-Factor USA, ultimately ending the show.According to numerous sources, he has decided to return to the UK for the 2014 season of their X Factor. With that, Fox Chairman of Entertainment, Kevin Reilly, has stated:
"Unfortunately, there is no X Factor USA without Simon Cowell, but we understand and support his decision to focus on the international formats and on the next phase of his personal life...We wish him the very best, and it's our sincere hope that we work together again soon."
And with that, the show is cancelled! This all just confirms a rumor lingering since last months confirmation that Demi Lovato was also leaving the show. And after the oversaturation of reality singing competitions has seen the surge of "The Voice", while American Idol remains a top show, there was never any room it seemed for X factor to catch on, as it's struggled since it's launch. We too wish Simon the best in the future.
