Simon Cowell Headed To Broadway?! If His New Musical Isn't Too Offensive!

simon cowell x factor musical i cant sing broadway

Simon Cowell has already conquered music, TV, fatherhood. So what's next? Possibly Broadway!

Simon recently produced a musical on London's West End called I Can't Sing, a spoof of X Factor, that is getting some pretty exciting reviews.

According to inside sources, the show's producers are in talks with multiple theaters to bring Sing to the Great White Way!

But there are a couple obstacles. First, the show is an obvious send-up of the judges on X Factor UK! For it to work on Broadway, the script would have to be adapted to reflect the judges American audiences have grown to love.

The second roadbump is a bit taller- and more personal! It seems some of the spoofing hit a little too close to home for some of the judges! The source says:

It's pretty much safe to say Simon Cowell is the driving force behind One Direction's success!

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.

Were you expecting sweet peace between Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole on the X Factor UK this season??!

Well, think again because the twosome are still bickering!

Actually, Cheryl insists that Simon had to beg for her to sit back on the judging panel after winning a lawsuit against the music mogul for firing her unexpectedly in 2010.

YUP! Our fave reality TV is just as explosive as ever!

The unimaginable has happened! Simon Cowell has been rejected!

Rita Ora has declined Simon's ultra exclusive invitation to join the X Factor UK judging panel next season and it'll cost her about $1.6 million.

BELIEVE IT.

Instead of sitting high and comfy between Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne, Rita is wayyyy more interested in working on her own career.

Besides her role in the super anticipated 50 Shades Of Grey, Rita's new album is coming out this summer, so it's no surprise she would rather not be distracted from her plans for U.S. domination.

Regardless of the reasoning, the thought of anyone saying "no" to Simon is HIGHlarious — especially when we imagine it with Rita's sass! HA!

Oh well! Guess Simon will just have to find another songbird to replace Nicole Scherzinger.
