'X Factor' Cancelled By Fox

'X Factor' Cancelled By Fox

It’s official — The X Factor is not coming back.

The competition show, which featured Demi Lovato, Paulina Rubio, Kelly Rowland and Simon Cowell as judges, has been axed, after crowning Alex and Sierra the season three winners.

“I’ve had a fantastic time over the last 12 years, both on The X Factor and American Idol,” Simon shared in a statement.

He continued, “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!). Last year, for a number of reasons, I had to make a decision to return to the UK version of The X Factor in 2014. So for now, I’m back to the UK and I want to thank Fox for being an incredible partner and I also want to thank everybody who has supported my shows. America, I’ll see you soon!”

Other alums from The X Factor: Fifth Harmony, Emblem3 and Carly Rose Sonenclar.

“I started the show being a singer and a musician, and so I’m going to go back to that,” Demi told reporters (via Billboard). “It’s been really great, but I’m so excited for 2014. I’m going to dedicate it completely and entirely to music – touring and making a new album. Possibly releasing one.”

As for what she would miss most about the show, Demi said, “Being able to sit next to Kelly [Rowland] and Paulina [Rubio] and see them twice a week, and also helping mentor the contestants.”

Demi is set to hit the road early next year for her Neon Lights Tour, featuring Cher Lloyd, Little Mix, and Fifth Harmony.
