"I always knew she wasn't coming back because she's touring, so I knew that," Cowell said on Wednesday night (Dec. 18), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Despite a steady ratings decline, Cowell is confident that "The X Factor" will be back for a fourth season.

"The show will be back next season," he said during a conference call, according to the L.A. Times., adding, "I might have a different kind of role."

"The X Factor" crowns its winner Thursday at 8 p.m. EST on Fox.
