Simon Cowell has joined AMERICA’S GOT TALENT season 11 as a judge, NBC announced. Cowell — who created the GOT TALENT format — previously served as a judge on Fox’s AMERICAN IDOL and THE X FACTOR.

“I am really thrilled to be joining AMERICA’S GOT TALENT next season,” said Cowell in a statement. “What I love about this show is that it’s open to absolutely anyone. America has some fantastic talent just waiting to be discovered, and I would like that talent to come to our show, including any dogs who can sing!”

“Simon knows this format better than anyone and he’s been producing the show with us since the beginning, so we’re thrilled to have him to step in front of the camera and take his rightful place at the head of the judges’ panel,” said Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “We welcome him to the on-screen NBC family.”

“As the creator of the ‘Got Talent’ format, he genuinely loves the show more than anyone and is uniquely qualified as we take ‘AGT’ into its next decade,” said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC Entertainment. “We can’t wait to see the incredible acts the show will uncover as we head into season 11.”

Fox has canceled THE X FACTOR, the network announced.

“I’ve had a fantastic time over the last 12 years, both on THE X FACTOR and AMERICAN IDOL,” said Simon Cowell in a statement. “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 U.K. version of ‘The X Factor’ in 2014. So for now, I’m back to the U.K. 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!”

“To all of us at FOX, Simon is more than one of the most prolific TV personalities of our time — he’s part of our family,” said Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “A consummate showman and partner, there’s no one more passionate or creative than Simon, and we feel so fortunate to have enjoyed such a wonderful, collaborative relationship with him over the past 12 years. Unfortunately, there is no X FACTOR USA without Simon Cowell, but we understand and support his decision to focus on the international formats and on the next phase of his personal life. We wish him the very best, and it’s our sincere hope that we work together again soon.”

Are you OK with THE X FACTOR ending?
