Rita Ora Turned Down An X Factor UK Judging Seat AND Over $1 Million! She's Too Busy Being 50 Shades Of Fierce!

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.

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

Simon Cowell wouldn't let the U.S. version of X Factor go that easily!

Before FOX gave the singing competition the axe, the TV mogul very quietly tried to convince NBC to give the show a new home.

Sadly, the network already houses The Voice and X Factor's tanking ratings weren't exactly tempting.

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.

Bleh!

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.”
