We are displeased to announce the official cancellation of The X Factor USA. The show just recruited Paula Rubino, Kelly Rowland and Demi Lovato for its third season, but has announced that it will not be going forward for a fourth season. Ugh. What will Simon Cowell do now? Perhaps he just wants to concentrate on being a father?
This fall, the show would have made its return, but Simon has announced that he will continue on with the U.K. version of the talent competition. Simon revealed in a statement, “I’ve had a fantastic time over the last twelve years, both on The X Factor and American Idol. And apart from being lucky enough to find some amazing talent on the shows, I have always had an incredible welcome from the American public – most of the time!”
It’s a shame to see Simon withdrawing his show from American television. Are you sad to see it go? Now that The Voice and American Idol will have no competition, which of the two will you be tuning into on a regular basis? Have your say in the comments section below!
