Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell recently joined Olivia Jones on the phone from The X Factor studio to chat about his upcoming new project.

The X Factor: The Bands aims to find the next big band in a similar way that the show found One Direction, Little Mix and Fifth Harmony.

Simon was on set of another of his new projects The X Factor: Celebrity and he told Olivia that despite wanting to emulate the success of the past... he's open to hearing something new.

He admitted that K Pop is a market that he's respects and hopes his new band can take pointers from BTS.
