Simon Cowell Talks About Demi Lovato's Replacement On The X Factor Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.19.2013
And his plans for season 4...
In an interview with Zap2It, Simon Cowell said that The X Factor will be back for a fourth season. He also spoke about Demi Lovato's replacement for the show. Here are highlights:
On the return of The X Factor: "I believe it will be back. It will have a different look to it. And I think what it has proved -- particularly with what has happened on iTunes -- is that the show has a relevancy, that you can actually produce people who can sell records. Otherwise it becomes a game show."
On the exit of Demi Lovato: "Demi I knew wasn't coming back because she [is going to be] touring. So we always knew that. Two seasons was good. They have all been great. But it is definitely time for a change. First of all I have to talk to them to see if they want to come back and what their commitments are.
On who Lovato's replacement will be: "Well there is somebody in mind who we have wanted for a while for the show who has suddenly become available. I am definitely not going to tell you. But [this person] is larger than life and would be spectacular."
