It’s Official Simon Cowell Is Leaving American Idol

Simon Cowell

If you are a Simon Cowell fan you better make sure you tune into to Fox 8 tomorrow night as this will be his last season on American Idol.  There has  been much chatter about whether the highly popular judge was going to leave and now it appears to be true reports news.com.au
In 2011 he is going to concentrate on bringing The X Factor to the US. The X Factor is very popular in the UK and Simon will  be an Executive Producer and judge on the US version of the show. The show is currently screening in 17 countries.

Australia is not one of them. The X Factor was a huge dud for Channel Ten when it launched here many years ago.

American Idol season kicks off on Fox 8 Wednesday 13 January at 7.30pm.

Wise man.
Move onto something else.
Everything gets tired after a while.

I’m interested to see how Ellen does on the panel, but Simon will be a huge loss. No doubt the organisation is scouting for a snarky British replacement – Toby Young, anyone?

New Jersey Star-Ledger TV guru Alan Sepinwall has this to say from the announcement of Cowell’s disappearance/the X Factor factor…

(Oh, and there’s a suggestion that Jonathon Ross might replace Cowell!)

TDK – I agree with you, always wise to leave the party while it still has a bit of life into it.

Injera – Fantastic article by Alan Sepinwall, and I think he right time to kill the goose, and hope another golden egg can be laid.

Who is Johnathan Ross?
