It has been a great disappointment for the fans of X Factor Israel, as Simon Cowell has decided to pull out of the show. As per the recent sources, Simon Cowell has stated that he will no longer be a part of the judging panel on season four of the popular show X Factor Israel.
The X Factor Israel is the Israeli version of the popular British television music competition The X Factor, which was created by Simon Cowell and started airing in 2013.
In the fourth season of X Factor Israel, Liron Weizman will be replacing Bar Refaeli as the host. Apart from Simon Cowell, Aviv Geffen, Margalit Tzan’ani, and Netta are expected to be the judges for season 4 of The X Factor Israel show.
Simon Cowell had signed on to film as the judge of X Factor Israel this summer, and his pulling out from the show is something that the fans are finding hard to digest. As per some reliable sources, it has been stated that Simon Cowell has decided to pull out of the show due to personal reasons.
It is also said that the members that are included in the staff circle of Simon Cowell have raised some legitimate concerns over his participation in the show, after the recent violence that has broken out between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.
But Cowell’s representatives have not replied to comment over the issue. It was in December 2020 Simon had signed for the show. If Simon Cowell had not decided to pull out from the show, it would have been his first instance of judging an international X Factor outside the US and UK.
