The X Factor USA was cancelled after three seasons on FOX, but Simon Cowell would “absolutely” bring it back for Season 4, he told The Mirror:
“Would I give American X Factor another go? Absolutely 100 percent, for sure,” he says.
“We got it all wrong, going in very arrogant. Again I opened my big mouth, I said we would get 20 million and as I said it I thought ‘oh my god, why did I say that’. I should have said five because it got something like 14 which was crazily good but of course I was dead by that point.
“Also we couldn’t be the last show of the year, so there was American Idol, America’s Got talent, dance show, two versions of The Voice. It was overkill and I was exhausted before we even started watching it.
“I do still think as a music show it is the best one out there.”
