US network NBC has ordered its first winter global version of the show.
He already has £375m in the bank but Cowell has his sights set on making the show a worldwide hit.
The X Factor mogul, 58, will head up the judging panel on America’s Got Talent: The Champions series.
It will feature contenders from past seasons of AGT and from the show’s global offshoots airing in 184 countries, including Britain’s Got Talent.
The Champions, which will also be produced by Cowell, will air later in the year.
Cowell, below, said: “I have always wanted to have a competition show for the very best of the ‘Got Talent’ acts from around the world.”
BGT won Best Entertainment Show at the BAFTAs on Sunday.
A US TV source added: “NBC simply love Simon and this show.
“The fanbase is there, the talent from around the world is easy to bring in so it is all set up for a hit.
“Simon and his company will make over £25m from putting it together.”
Meanwhile, judge Amanda Holden wants to step in for Ant McPartlin on the Britain’s Got Talent live shows.

The telly babe admitted the show won’t be the same for her and her fellow judges without the TV presenter – who admitted to having “alcohol and emotional issues” following a drink-drive conviction.
She’s ready to help out co-host Declan Donnelly. Speaking backstage at the Baftas, she said: “I think he will be missed but I think Dec will do a sterling job.”
She said: “Alesha and I are on hand to step in. Mand and Dec has a good ring to it actually.”
Ant wasn’t present at Sunday’s TV Baftas to see BGT pick up the Entertainment Programme prize, but Alesha admitted she is “proud” to be a part of the programme.
She said: “There are so many things going on in the world that are heavy but you put on our show, it makes you smile, it makes you laugh, it makes you cry sometimes.
“We’re so proud to be a part of it.”
