Music mogul Simon Cowell has revealed plans to take the X Factor to Las Vegas.
In a bid to make it a worldwide success, Simon is teaming up with billionaire Top Shop boss Sir Philip Green for the project.
"The plan is to take it to Vegas, I'm not going to tell you with who, but the CEO of the venue is coming to see us next week," Simon says.
"We'll have a permanent place, likely to be Caesar's Palace, the home of X Factor - live from Las Vegas!"
Simon - who earned an estimated £50 million last year - plans to charge people for the content over a pay-per-view internet channel.
