American Idol judge Simon Cowell wants to bring his other singing competition show, Britain’s “The X-Factor,” to Las Vegas and set it up as permanent attraction, according to published reports. In an interview with British GQ, Cowell says he’s teaming with billionaire Philip Green on the plan, which calls for a new version of “The X-Factor” to establish residency at a Vegas casino and hold two competitions a week. The shows would be made available to the world via pay-per-view on the internet. The British iteration of the show is best known for launching the career of Leona Lewis.
