This sh*t's bananas! B-A-N-A-N-A-S!
According to sources, they just signed a contract with rocker grrrl Gwen Stefani!!!!
This is absolutely AH-Mazing!!
He was working in London this morning when he heard his lady love was going into labor on the other side of the friggin' Atlantic Ocean!
Thankfully, Simon knew his son was coming sooner or later and he was smart enough to plan ahead
Before FOX gave the singing competition the axe, the TV mogul very quietly tried to convince NBC to give the show a new home.
While the first season cashed in an estimated $500 million thanks to super devoted fandom, by the third season the franchise lost its huge Pepsi sponsorship AND only earned a measly $139 million.
Now, the international success and TV mastermind will be packing his bags and heading back over the pond to rejoin the X Factor UK judging panel after padding his bank account with hundreds of millions from the now failed show.
So really, with the loss of Simon and a little less music on the American small screen, it sounds like U.S. viewers are really the only ones who are losing here!
What a drag!!! How we'll miss those charming insults! HA!
UPDATE: A rep from X Factor tells us any rumors of Simon Cowell trying to migrate the show to NBC are "completely categorically untrue.”
Sit down, X Factor fans, because we're about to ruin your day!
Fox just announced that they will be canceling X Factor USA!! That's right, the network is pulling the plug!!! And not in 2018 or whatever, right the eff now!!!
What? Seriously? What the
f**k Fox?! WHY?
Well, because X Factor patriarch and soon-to-be real life daddy Simon Cowell is returning to work on the show's UK version!!
Fox TV's entertainment guru Kevin Reilly explained why in a statement. He said:
Uh-oh, Simon, this is one kitty kat you don't want to mess with!
Specifically one Katy Perry!
The Prismatic songstress is clearly on Team Chezza after being a guest judge next to the brunette beauty on X Factor!
He’s got the looks. He’s got the attitude. Is that…Simon Cowell sitting on that throne in the picture above?!
No, no. That’s not the King of Criticism. It’s his X Factor musical counterpart!
Yup. This X Factor stage production is ACTUALLY happening, and soon!
The live show, which is actually called, I Can’t Sing! The X Factor Musical, is set to open at the end of March!
The man who landed the part of Simon is named Nigel Harmann, an Olivier Award winner and star of such other London stage shows as Shrek and Guys and Dolls.
Downton Abbey fans might also recognize him from the Season 4 premiere!
The show will also star Victoria Elliot as Jordy and Alex Knight as Louis!
So far we give a big thumbs up to the casting department!
But what do you think, Perezcious Readers? Will this new musical be a British delicious treat! Or will it fall flat on its face and get a ‘NO’ from audiences?

We wonder if there's a reason why this one's the favorite!
So, it would make sense that her daughter Lillie May, who's a huge fan of One Direction, would consider Zayn her favorite, right??
Apparently that's not the case though! In fact it's actually Harry Styles!
Here's what she recently said:
Our red carpet presence was HUGE in 2013!
Which gets us even more pumped for the year to come!
Ch-ch-check out some of our fav 2013 red carpet moments (above!)
The star power's positively contagious!
