‘The X Factor’ USA: Simon Cowell reflects, promotes Alex & Sierra, Fifth Harmony

The latest -While Simon Cowell may not always be the sort of guy to tweet with a great deal of frequency, when he gets going on a subject, he has been known to turn his account into more or less a personal blog for everything happening in his life. Some of his posts can be rather lengthy, and can also cover a wide array of subjects related to what he is up to.

So for this latest round of posts, Simon did a little bit of everything, starting off with addressing some of the stories that are out there about whether or not he approached NBC with an idea to bring “The X Factor” over there in some form after Fox made the move to not bring the show back for another season:

“Not quite sure who ‘offered’ X factor USA to a rival network. It wasn’t my company. There will always be speculation about these things. The last time I appeared on X factor uk it resulted in over 45 million record sales. So I decided last year to return home to the uk show. Sometimes we rest these shows in other countries. And that’s what we did in a crowded market. In most cases the show returned stronger. Thought I should try and explain what really happened. Both fox and us made the decision to protect a very important brand to us.”

In addition to that, Simon shared a few nice comments about Fifth Harmony, Little Mix, and former judge Demi Lovato, and said he is pleased with the progress Alex & Sierra are making with their debut album:

“The Alex and Sierra early tracks are fantastic. I have huge faith in these two … Wishing little mix and fifth harmony good luck tonight in la. On tour with my buddy Demi.”
