We knew he had the option of picking up his contract!

And it seems like that is definitely going to happen!

Former One Direction member Zayn Malik has been in the news a lot lately over his departure from the group and the revelations that Zayn plans to embark on a solo career.

But no one was sure if Simon Cowell was going to pick up Zayn's contract since Zayn left the band that Simon's been championing for a while now! However we did know Simon had a "leaving member clause" in Zayn's contract with One Direction that totally gave him the option of keeping Zayn.

And it apparently looks as if Simon Cowell will not only pick up Zayn's option, but is expecting him to stay a part of his record label Syco for a long time!!

Move over Simon Cowell, there's a new mean singing competition judge in town…

Or at least, there was!

On Sunday's episode of X Factor New Zealand, Natalia Kills and her husband Willy Moon went off on a contestant who bared some resemblance to the latter judge.

And when we say they went off, that's just an understatement!
