The singer released a statement earlier today.
Releasing a statement earlier today the singer explained that she's looking to focus on her next album, which she hopes to release later this year.
"I have had such an amazing experience being a judge on The X Factor. I have learnt so much and enjoyed nurturing talent but I've missed making music and am excited to be recording again," she said.
Adding: "I want to thank everybody I have worked with along the way, especially Simon who I love to bits. I hope the show continues to produce stars and I wish them all the best."
