Simon Cowell Lowers The Age Limit On X Factor In Hopes Of Finding The Next Best Thing — A.K.A, Another One Direction!
He did pick those boys and grouped them together when they appeared on X Factor the very first time. But even though they placed third in the competition, they're certainly number one in every tween's heart at the moment!
So, it's no surprise that the X Factor judge wants to recreate that success with another, younger band, that's why he lowered the age limit from 16 to 14!
A source close to the situation is claiming:
Just as the X Factor UK is warming up for its 11th season, I Can't Sing! The X Factor The Musical had to abandon a live performance mid-show.

Simon Cowell Tried To Save X Factor From Cancellation, But His Plan Could've Made Him Look Like A Traitor!
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.”
