Simon Cowell let his open life jacket fly free during a day of jet skiing in Barbados on Saturday. The X Factor mastermind and judge is known to spend his holidays relaxing in the world's most luxurious spots, and this time is no exception. Last Christmas Simon was shirtless in St. Barts and his tan will once again be perfect to kick off a new year. Simon's X Factor crowned its first stateside winner last week, and while the show will be coming back for a second season, there may be some shifts coming up. Host Steve Jones is rumored to not be returning, and apparently Nicole Scherzinger may also be leaving X Factor. Simon is here to stay, however, and for now he has some downtime after crowning 19-year-old Melanie Avaro victorious.
