Simon Cowell Juggernaut ‘The X Factor’ Unlikely To Return To ITVUK broadcaster ITV has said that it has no plans to screen another season of Simon Cowell’s entertainment juggernaut The X Factor. The singing competition was due to return for a 16th season … This doesn't hurt my feelings. But I fear this is not the last we will see of Simon Cowell.

And he can’t have have his special brand of control over people again.

That's not really X Factor that is cancelled...it's more Cowell and his abuses ...And I hope more heads will fall in this Music industry. vencemos Mixers!! agora vai falir, vai cair no poço do esquecimento. 17 years and I only remember Leona Lewis, One Direction, and Little Mix. 🤦‍♀️ Is anyone even bothered? I'd say it a relief
