LA Reid will not be back for another season of The X Factor, Deadline has confirmed. “He’s going back to the music business full time, it’s his decision,” a source says. The Epic Records chair was the only judge besides show creator Simon Cowell to return for Season 2 of the singing competition. The second-season option on his contract was picked up in February soon after Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and host Steve Jones were let go. Reid will sit with fellow judges Cowell, Britney Spears and Demi Lovato tonight for the live semifinals episode that is filming at 5 PM in LA.
