Simon Cowell: New judges for US X Factor

Cowell, the show’s producer, says he expects the US version of the singing contest to return next season on Fox, but it may be cut back to one night instead of two, and format changes are being discussed to keep it fresh.

The judging panel will probably will be different, Cowell says. Besides him, the X Factor judges include Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio.

“I think the show will be coming back next year,” he said.

Last week’s semi-final ratings were down 14% on the week before at 8pm and achieving 1.2 (4.89m).

Cowell said he had recruits in mind, but declined to identify them. He says he envisaged what he called a “different kind of role” for himself, but would not be more specific.

The show’s ratings have dipped in season three. The winner will be announced on the finale Thursday.
