Simon Cowell Is Not Quitting X Factor

| Filed under: TV NewsAnglophiliaSimon CowellX Factor


Don't worry, X Factor fans!

Simon Cowell is not leaving the UK talent show. He's just delaying the next season until January 2012 so that he can concentrate on launching the American version of the show.

As a result, Britain's Got Talent will be moved to next Fall and will have a longer run.

Cowell spoke with Radio 2 DJ Steve Wright, reassuring fans that he's committed to British network ITV.

He told Wright:

"We have a contract to put X Factor on in America next year, which we are committed to. And what we now have to look at is how much time we have got to make both shows, because I’ve got less time, so we are thinking about moving X Factor into a different time of the year and Britain’s Got Talent to a different time. I’ve been reassured by ITV that we have got all the money we need to make them better, if I think they are going to be better. I’ve always said I could have taken a full time job in America, but I didn’t want it, I want to make the shows here. All I’m trying to do is make sure we make better shows than before and if we can’t make them better than there’s no point in doing it."

There you go, Brits! Simon could never quit you!!

    British "Royalty" as it's absolute worst…an egocentric, smug, talentless waste of time and precious resources.

    I'm interested to hear more about Lady Gaga stealing her friend's style/music. Will you be covering this Perez? Sources at NYU confirm this story. What's your take?

    I wish he wouldn't bring X Factor to the USA. Please spare us with another shitty karaoke show.

    It's a Free-For-All American money grab; too bad the American Dollar is not worth anything and Simon will be back living in his mom & dad's basement again!
