The X Factor USA
has been renewed for a third season. It's all about how Britney says 'uummmnooo'.

Fox has announced its talent show will run for a third series and Simon Cowell insists he is 'so proud' (not to mention grateful to the tune of millions) of 'The X Factor' USA and praised the show's fans for all their support.

The music mogul - who sits alongside L.A. Reid, Britney Spears and Demi Lovato on the panel - said in a statement: "I couldn't be happier about The X Factor already being renewed for another season. I am so proud of the show and the team who have made it this season. I want to thank our incredible sponsors for their support and creativity, and Fox for going out of their way to do everything they can to make this show a success. Most importantly, I have to personally thank our amazing fans for the support and enthusiasm they have given to The X Factor." Shower them with hunnerd dollar bills the next time they turn up to audition, so.

With The X Factor USA's live shows just days away, Simon told the fans to expect "fireworks" in the forthcoming episodes, which will be co-hosted by Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez (who reportedly hate each other. Or have been told to hate each other by producers).

He added: "Our main commitment will always be to find great talent (not novelty acts for TV ratings, or lucrative sponsorship deals), and let's not forget, we are now days away from our first live shows. The gloves are off! Expect fireworks!"
