Music mogul Simon Cowell is plotting changes for The X Factor, including fresh judges and a mysterious new role for him.

Cowell, the show's producer, says he expects the US version of the singing contest to return next season on Fox, but it may be cut back to one night instead of two, and format changes are being discussed to keep it fresh.

The judging panel will probably will be different, Cowell says. Besides him, the X Factor judges include Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio.

Cowell said he had recruits in mind, but declined to identify them. He says he envisaged what he called a "different kind of role" for himself, but would not be more specific.

The show's ratings have dipped in season three. The winner will be announced on the finale Thursday.
