'X Factor' Musical Booted Off Stage At London's West End

"X Factor" guru Simon Cowell has become the latest big name in show business to suffer an expensive pratfall in London's West End with the announcement on Monday that the musical "I Can't Sing!" which he co-produced will close after a six-week run. The demise of the musical parody of the TV talent contest, which reportedly cost $10 million to produce, comes hard on the heels of the closures of musicals by long-time West End and Broadway hotshots Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber. It also follows the expensive fiasco in 2012 of a musical based on the Spice Girls pop band.
