Simon Cowell became a worldwide sensation thanks to his role as a judge on ‘American’s Got Talent.’ He became the snarky and sarcastic person people loved to hate. That being said, Cowell never fails to make an impression when he wants to. In fact, Cowell finally confirmed a huge piece of news – that The X-Factor will be returning to the USA after a decade.
The X-Factor is one of the most popular singing competitions in the world, which made its debut back in 2004 in the UK. It eventually branched off into various versions all over the world.
The X Factor premiered in America in 2011 where it aired for three seasons. The mentors for the United States version of The X Factor over the course of three seasons were Simon, L.A. Reid, Nicole Scherzinger, Paula Abdul, Britney Spears, Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland, and Paulina Rubio.
While speaking with The U.S. Sun, Simon Cowell revealed that The X Factor is returning to the United States ten years after it got canceled by Fox. Simon has made a deal with NBC to bring the show back.
“I have a saying in life that’s always go where you’ve got the best invitation – and NBC has offered us to make the show here. Which means we’ll make the show here. We found our perfect partner with NBC – honestly, I am not just saying that because they pay me, but they are brilliant.
I just really like them, got on well with them and they get a kick out of seeing people succeed on [AGT].” Simon also revealed that there is more interest in reviving The X Factor in America than the United Kingdom, where the show was canceled after 14 years in 2018. He said, “So you go where the best navigation is and if I am being honest there is more excitement to make it here than in the UK.”
The X Factor was a very popular and exciting show when it was airing in the USA. We will have to wait and see how the show will end up being received by fans once it comes back this year.
