Simon Cowell says he's leaving American Idol
Last month, Simon Cowell’s brother let the cat out of the bag when he said Cowell will leave “American Idol” after the 2010 season.
Now, Cowell has confirmed the news. This season will be his last on “American Idol” because he’s going to focus on “The X Factor”–a talent show that will begin airing in the United States next year, according to the Associated Press.
Cowell said he’s leaving “Idol” because it would be too difficult for him to be on both shows.
Paula Abdul is being replaced by Ellen DeGeneres this season, and that’s going to some getting used to by us “American Idol” fans.
But when C0well leaves, it might hinder the show’s success. Many viewers tune in to see and hear Cowell’s straight forward (yet rude) comments. It will be hard for the network to find a suitable replacement for him.
