There's no denying Simon Cowell knows the winning formula for a TV talent show, he's given us the likes of The X Factor, Britain's Got Talent and American Idol over the years. But with recent viewing figures of this year's The X Factor lower than usual, it looks like Simon has a new show in the pipeline.
Speaking to the press, Simon has reportedly teased a brand new 'music show' which he hopes to win back viewers from popular dancing show Strictly Come Dancing.
According to the Daily Star, Simon said, "Watch this space. We've got a new show soon. I can't say more but it's still music."
The 58-year-old then added, "You'll like this one we're making. You'll have to wait but you will see more about it soon. We make lots of shows but this is a music show."
Simon didn't elaborate any further, but he has kick-started some of the biggest stars' careers, including the likes of One Direction, Little Mix, Kelly Clarkson, Olly Murs and Camila Cabello. Simon returned to our TV screens last weekend after missing the first live show of this year's The X Factor to recover from a fall in his home. Simon collapsed and fell down the stairs at the end of last month, but he looked himself again sitting on the panel last weekend.
It was another good week on the singing show for his groups, Rak-Su yet again impressed with another original song called "Dimelo," The Cutkelvins performed their own rendition of Little Mix's "Reggaeton Lento," and Jack and Joel performed an upbeat medley. Irish brothers Jack and Connor Price also sailed through to next weekend's live show with the performance of Sia's hit track "Cheap Thrills."
After their amazing performance on Saturday night, Rak-Su has now overtaken Grace Davies to become the favorites to win the current series, with odds of 1/1. And things continue to get better for the group, last night they took to Twitter to reveal their track "Dimelo" is Number 1 on the iTunes chart, with "Mamacita" sitting at Number 4.

Could they be Simon's next big act and follow in the footsteps of the likes of One Direction? While Mr. Cowell works on his new music project, we still have the rest of The X Factor to watch in the meantime.
