Simon Cowell is set to rake in a whopping £10 million a year with a "prime-time" America's Got Talent residency-style show in Las Vegas.

The music mogul is hoping to take over Sin City with the exhilarating new show at the opulent Luxor Hotel, which could also feature several successful performers from Britain's Got Talent.

A source told The Mirror : "The market for the AGT acts in Vegas has been successful. So it is no surprise that Simon is taking the next step.

"On top of that, he can use his show to promote these stars. This could work out really well in the short and long term. And of course, an added bonus is that Simon could introduce British acts from BGT there by having them in as special guests."

The show, which is Simon's "smarted business move" so far, has been "three years" in the making and was previously affected by the Covid pandemic.

This year Simon is said to feel confident with the support from investors and media company MGM and is hoping to "bring Vegas back bigger and better".

The live show will reportedly offer shows twice a week and will feature stars from AGT, including the winner of the current series which is airing.

If successful, Simon will bring in stars of talent shows worldwide, especially his native Britain.

Potential stars from Britain's Got Talent who could appear on the show include Susan Boyle, Twist and Pulse, Pulse and Attraction.

This comes following reports that Simon could join forces with streaming giant Netflix for a new talent show.

A source told The Sun : "Simon never rests on his laurels. He is constantly thinking creatively of new ideas and shows, innovating and evolving all the time.

"It is one of the secrets of his huge success over the years.

"He has told friends that he is sick of competitors trying to out-do the brand, so decided he would do it himself. He's vowed that his next show will be bigger and better than BGT [Britain's Got Talent].'
