Fox has opted not to continue with The X Factor, canceling the singing competition after three seasons on the air in the US. The show was adapted from the original British version in 2011, but American audiences never really took to show, evidenced by it underperforming in each of its seasons.

Simon Cowell, who was The X Factor's executive producer, will be heading back to the U.K. where he will return to the British version of the show in the fall.
