We all have regrets in life and Sharon Osbourne’s regret is quitting X Factor. Sometime you quit something and then you are like…I think I could have dealt with it or I should have toughed it out but you can’t turn back time. Sharon is on a great showthough, America’s Got Talent…so she didn’t do too bad!!!
Sharon Osbourne has admitted that she regrets her decision to quit The X Factor and still longs to work on the show.
The 57-year-old, who returns to assist Louis Walsh at the Judges’ Houses stage of this year’s contest, ended her role as a judge in 2008 after demanding a Â£500,000 pay rise that she knew would likely be denied.
She told the Daily Mail: “It was stupid, At my age I should have known better. In hindsight, yes, I was too impulsive.
“It took me two years to really get over [quitting]. It is such an amazing show and I met some terrific people. Leaving that was an awfully big decision. But it has worked out well for everyone; for Cheryl [Cole], who was the one I wanted to replace me – she’s been a great asset; and for me, with what I do now in America.”
The America’s Got Talent judge added that she was impressed with how the The X Factor had progressed from a simple talent show to a spectacular event following her departure.
“It’s much more glamorous now,” she stated. “They’ve really stepped it up.”
