FOX has cancelled X Factor USA after producer and judge Simon Cowell announced his return to the show’s UK version.
Cowell said in a statement: “I’ve had a fantastic time over the last 12 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!).
“Last year, for a number of reasons, I had to make a decision to return to the UK version of The X Factor in 2014.
“So for now, I’m back to the UK and I want to thank Fox for being an incredible partner and I also want to thank everybody who has supported my shows. America, I’ll see you soon!”
