Simon Cowell Is Leaving American Idol
Written under: Entertainment, Human Interest, Music, Pop Culture
It’s confirmed and final, Simon Cowell is leaving American Idol after the current season. The reason why Simon Cowell is leaving is mainly because he wants to do something different.
Simon Cowell stated in an announcement to reporters that he was actually offered a lot of money to stay on, but money was not really the reason for his leaving – he just wants a new challenge.
After leaving American Idol, Simon Cowell will most probably be busy with the show he created called The X Factor. A show that’s been a big hit in Britain.
It’s been announced that The X Factor will join Fox’s television schedule by next year and those who will miss Cowell’s bravado can catch him in that show.
No replacement for Simon Cowell has been revealed yet. This season may be his last but it’s the first season for Idol judge Ellen DeGeneres who replaced Paula Adbul.
