The X Factor Canceled

X Factor Top 12 Party for Season 3

The U.S. version of The X Factor is canceled!  Simon Cowell released a statement tonight, confirming that he was leaving the show.  Shortly after his announcement, Fox canceled the show after three seasons on the air. 

Simon shared that he's leaving to head back to projects in the UK.  And probably to spend some time with his baby boy, who is due soon.  "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!).  I also want to thank everybody who has supported my shows. America, I’ll see you soon!"
