The 'Britain's Got Talent' winners have signed a record deal with the music mogul after winning over the British public with their rendition of 'Stars' from the musical 'Les Misérables' during last weekend's final.
Speaking about his decision, Simon said: "Collabro were worthy winners of 'Britain's Got Talent'.
"I am delighted to welcome them to Syco and am looking forward to them starting work on their debut album."
In addition to their £250,000 winnings and a slot at the upcoming Royal Variety show, the five-piece could be set to enjoy a long-term career, with their first album scheduled for release on July 14, according to The Sun newspaper.
Collabro's Jamie Lambert said of his excitement: "Signing to Syco is the most incredible feeling.
"We are so lucky and proud to join a family of amazing, talented artists and colleagues and we're thrilled to be working with Syco in order to take Collabro to the next level.
"This is an absolute dream for us - and it's only the beginning."
Collabro fought off competition from singer Lucy Kay and rappers Bars & Melody to be crowned champions of the ITV talent show.
