X Factor Cancelled!

After just three seasons the U.S version of the X Factor has been cancelled by Fox. The cancellation really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise seeing as the show has had less than stellar ratings throughout its three year run. Probably not helping its ratings and its chances of being picked up for another season where the constant shake-ups to the judging panel. Now that the U.S version is over, Simon Cowell is set to return to the U.K version after 3 years. In a statement about the cancellation Cowell said; “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 U.K. version of The X Factor in 2014. So for now, I’m back to the U.K. 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!”
