L.A. Reid Calls 'X Factor' the 'Worst Thing I've Ever Done'

L.A. Reid has some harsh words for his stint as a judge on the first two seasons of The X Factor.

The 59-year-old music exec says that it was “the worst thing I’ve ever done.”

“The first season, yes, I had a great time,” L.A. told The Hollywood Reporter. “It was a little bit of a vacation. I’d been making music, working at running labels for a long time, and it was a little bit of, ‘Let me just have some fun.’ But the second season I was fully engaged trying run a label, and it wasn’t fun anymore.”

“And more importantly, it really affected my taste — it almost destroyed it,” he continued. “It completely threw me off — by the way, I have a book coming out soon, and it’ll all be on my book,” he interjected with a laugh. “But yeah, what works for television isn’t necessarily the thing that works in the traditional journey of music, so I adjusted my taste for television. But the truth is, I lowered my bar — my bar was quite high, if I’m being honest, and as a result I didn’t have the same level of success. The bar is quite high again now, but it was damaging. I worked with Simon Cowell, who I love and have great respect for and he has great taste, but being around him for that long, I started to take on his taste, and I’m an amateur at having his taste — I’m good at my kind of taste.”

'The X Factor' Cancelled After Three Seasons

The X Factor has been cancelled after three seasons by Fox.

“I’ve had a fantastic time over the last 12 years, both on The X Factor and American Idol..Last year, for a number of reasons, I had to make a decision to return to the U.K. version of The X Factor in 2014. So for now, I’m back to the U.K. and I want to thank Fox for being an incredible partner and I also want to thank everybody who has supported my shows. America, I’ll see you soon!” Simon Cowell, who was one of the creators and judges on the show, shared after the cancellation.

Kevin Reilly, who is Fox’s chairman added, “To all of us at Fox, Simon is more than one of the most prolific TV personalities of our time –he’s part of our family. A consummate showman and partner, there’s no one more passionate or creative than Simon, and we feel so fortunate to have enjoyed such a wonderful, collaborative relationship with him over the past 12 years. Unfortunately, there is no X Factor USA without Simon Cowell, but we understand and support his decision to focus on the international formats and on the next phase of his personal life. We wish him the very best, and it’s our sincere hope that we work together again soon.”
