Daily Dish: Simon Cowell Wants to Bring X Factor to America
The judge of all judges is in talks to introduce the talent competition to the States
If you’re hankering for another helping of quick-witted Brit Simon Cowell, then this is your lucky day.
Reuters reports that the cheeky judge is working on a deal with FOX to bring X Factor, his equally entertaining talent show, to the U.S.
Cowell’s contract with American Idol is just about up — although the producers of the program are hoping to keep him on as a judge for two more years.
Both shows are currently up in the air (and it’s unclear if Cowell would act as a judge on X Factor) but rumor has it that he could potentially collect $50 million a season for each show, so we’re guessing he’ll take the bait!
