simon cowell talks return to bgt

Looks like Simon's got ambitious plans for his return to BGT!

Last month, ITV president Adam Crozier confirmed that Simon Cowell would be returning to Britain's Got Talent as a judge, following The Hoff's firing!

Now, Simon has opened up about his return to the show, and he's aiming HIGH this season:

"I miss Britain and I miss the British public and I miss judging them. I want to find the next generation of talent in 2012. Different and new acts, younger and better talent. You want someone who can be a star all over the world and by coming back in 2012, it’s the year of the Olympics, it’s a big year for Britain, we are going to be in the world’s spotlight and I want this show to be back in the world spotlight."

"Even though they are both my shows, I would like to find a better winner on Britain’s Got Talent than The X Factor. To me it’s a challenge. What I really, really passionately believe when I do these shows is that you have to find someone who can be known all over the world from appearing on the show. That’s what happened with Paul Potts and that’s what happened with Susan Boyle."

And in case UR skeptical, Simon's putting his money where his mouth is! We're hearing that he's contributing £250,000 of his OWN MONEY to the year's prize, bringing it to £500,000 (apx $782,000)!!!!!

Shiz is about to get real on Britain's Got Talent! We can't wait!

    The only way to boost this tired old format talent show is to retire it and dust it off in 5 years. This type of staged insincere crap is everyhwere now and its dying.

  2. 2

    He makes every show more popular with his nasty comments. I just can't believe how rich this guy is saw a show on how many homes he owns, life is so not fair he can give me about two I would be happy :D

    This guy is such a clown, not to mention disgusting. Jesus christ.
