L.A. Reid Leaving the Showóbut Don't Blame Simon Cowell!
Surprise, another shakeup at The X Factor judges' table is in the works.
L.A. Reid, the only talent besides executive producer Simon Cowell who survived last season's blood-letting, revealed today that he won't be coming back to the show next year.
"I have to go back and, I have a company to run that I've kind of neglected and it saddens me a little bit but only a little bit," the record exec told Access Hollywood. "It was a nice break, it was a nice departure from what I've done for the past 20 years, but now I gotta go back to work."
Reid said his move has nothing to do with his relationship with Cowell, who he frequently bickers with on camera. (We'll miss that, BTW.)
"I love Simon," Reid told Access. "We have a great relationship, we have fun together, we talk, we laugh, we do bad things, we're friends. I owe so much to Simon. I really have a lot [of] respect for him and I always will. I support him, I support the show and I'll always be in business with him."
It was not immediately clear, however, whether Cowell knew this was coming. Fox and FremantleMedia North America have not yet returned requests for comment.
But before he leaves, Reid still has a shot at a winning season. Though he wasn't nuts about mentoring the "over-25s" this year, country singer Tate Stevensópresuming he survives tonight's eliminationócould take the whole thing next week.

||It makes sense. From the little of the US version that I watched he didn't seem a proper fit for the format. Too serious and too into himself. They need someone who understands that while it's a search for an artist it's also a pantomime.|

||Please, God, do not let Demi and Britney leave! They're making it for me this year.|

||GOOD! I could barely stand his judging/commentary. He comes across really smug, arrogant & just unpleasant to watch. I also didn't like how pissy he got when he found out he was mentoring the over 25's this season. Little 'ol baby bitch. BYE!|

I agree on Demi...but Britney...she is a two-lining robot...
Her appearance this season is the epitome of the term "phoning it in"
