Simon Cowell to Return to BRITAIN'S GOT TALENT Next Year
The show, which airs on the UK's ITV, was the highest-rated entertainment show for the year.
Also set to return to the talent competition are hosts Ant and Dec, and judges Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, and Davied Walliams. This year's winners were Ashleigh and Pudsley - a trainer and dancing dog.
"I loved doing the show," Cowell said. "The new panel worked really well, and I'm very happy they have all agreed to come back. I hope that in 2013, off the back of an amazing year for Britain, we find another global star."
Cowell and Holden have remained judges on TALENT since the show's premiere. Dixon and Walliams took up their positions on the panel this year.
Auditions for BRITAIN'S GOT TALENT are set to get underway in Jan. 2013, making stops throughout the UK.
