Simon Cowell skipping Britain's Got Talent auditions

Tuesday April 27, 2010

Simon Cowell has revealed he will not be present for the auditions section of Britain's Got Talent next year, because of his new commitment to the US version of X Factor.

"I won't be doing the BGT auditions next year. I will join the show at the semi-final stage. I will eventually leave but nothing is decided yet. We launch US X Factor next year too which is a huge challenge," the music mogul says.

"I like the show but it takes a hell of a lot of time. You sit there watching horrific acts and you think, 'I genuinely can't do this any more'.

"I am considering next year, coming in for the semi-finals, just the studio bit. Can I see the show without me? Yes, it can work without me."
