Simon Cowell is continuing to revamp the X Factor this year. This time he has turned his attention to the theme and set design.
The theme tune is an instantly recognisable tune which fans have hummed along to since 2004 when the show began.
Simon told the Daily Mirror: “We’re scrapping the theme song, “I can’t listen to that again. I will never hear it again.
“It is one of the worst theme songs I’ve ever heard.
“I’m asking around in LA to see if someone can write us something new.”
Simon is trying to freshen up the show in looks and design. Will this be the end of the trademark X?
“We’re going to completely redesign the set,” he says.
“I haven’t decided how it will look yet, but I have met with a designer.”
“The risk is doing nothing – boring and predictable,” he says. “So when we got the opportunity, I went for it.
Simon has also confirmed the judges for the celebrity version he is filming at the moment at his home in Malibu.
“Celeb X Factor is Nicole and Louis, because I think it’ll be fun. I don’t think they know who is coming out either.
“Wouldn’t be a fourth, because only three categories.
Simon confirms Louis will be on X Factor All Stars with himself and an American producer.
Simon is filming this section similar to his judges' houses last year when he invited celebrities and music producers to a party at his home.
