Simon Cowell, creator of “The X Factor”, publicized Friday, through reporters by satellite from England, the possible prizes of  the US-version show’s winning singer or singers, which include a recording contract, a $5 million cash prize and a break to be featured in a Super Bowl commercial for Pepsi, as announced by various international news site, August 5, 2011.

Previously, Fox apparently announced that the prize for the top finisher was a $5 million record contract but Cowell confirmed that there would also be a cash payment though he didn’t indicate the value of the contract with Syco, his joint venture with Sony Music.

Cowell, a former “American Idol” judge, is bringing his U.K.-born show to Fox in September. Reports verify that unlike “Idol”, the contest is open to both solo singers and groups and has a lower minimum age of 12 with no upper age limit. Significantly, like “Idol”, Paula Abdul will also join Cowell as a judge.
