Simon Cowell to Return to UK Version of The X Factor Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 02.08.2014
After the cancellation of the US version...
The Guardian reports that Simon Cowell will return to The X Factor UK after the US version was recently cancelled by Fox.
Cowell last appeared as a judge on the British show in 2010 before he went to the US to launch the show there as well. He looks to reverse the falling ratings for the British version, which were the main reason Fox cancelled the show in the US.
Cowell said on the announcement: "I'm absolutely thrilled to be returning to The X Factor UK. It's been three years since I last judged the competition and I'm excited to find a global superstar again. The UK X Factor has set the benchmark in finding worldwide superstars over the years – including One Direction, Leona Lewis, Cher Lloyd, Olly Murs, JLS and Little Mix."
