Simon Cowell is leaving American Idol!
During a press conference in Pasadena, California, Cowell officially announced that he is leaving America Idol to bring the hit British show X Factor to America. “I’m doing X Factor in America because I believe I can find someone incredibly talented through this process. This country, thank God, has got thousands and thousands of people still waiting to be discovered. I want to find a star at the end, I genuinely do.” This along with the news that Paula Abdul will be joining Cowell as a judge on X Factor seem to point to the end of American Idol.
