Los Angeles - The X Factor USA has been renewed for a third season.

Fox has announced its talent show will run for a third series and judge Simon Cowell, who quit the UK version of the show to set up the American programme, insists he is "so proud" of The X Factor USA and praised the show's fans for all their support.

The music mogul who sits alongside LA Reid, Britney Spears and Demi Lovato on the panel said: "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."

Fans should expect fireworks

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.

"Our main commitment will always be to find great talent, and let's not forget, we are now days away from our first live shows. The gloves are off! Expect fireworks," Simon added.

The second season of The X Factor USA is currently airing on M-Net on Saturdays at 18:00 and Sunday's at 17:30.

Viewers can expect to see Khloe and Mario debut as hosts from mid-November.
