Simon Cowell leaving American Idol 0111_simon_cowell_bn_tmz_01Simon Cowell: I'm Leaving 'American Idol'


Simon Cowell will no longer be crushing terrible singers' dreams on the most popular show on television.

Cowell just announced this will be his last season on "American Idol" -- and that he's leaving the show to be a judge and executive producer on FOX's upcoming American version of "The X Factor" ... the British talent show that launced Leona Lewis' career.

Cowell just made the announcement during the semiannual Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena.

UPDATE: Cowell said he was "offered a lot of money" to stay on "American Idol" ... but he "wanted to do something different." BTW, Simon reportedly makes around $36 million a year on "A.I."

That sucks! I can't imagine AI without Simon! I guess this will be my last year too!

Simon Cowell leaving American Idol 0111_paula_ex_tmz_01Simon Cowell Courts Paula Abdul

Paula Abdul has had discussions with Simon Cowell about being a judge on the U.S. version of "X Factor"... sources tell TMZ.

The irony is stunning -- Simon, the lynchpin of "American Idol," abandoning ship and teaming up with the woman who was unceremoniously dumped from "A.I."

Our sources would not say how far along the discussions have gone between Simon and Paula ... but there were talks as recently as late last week.

can't imagine the show succeeding without Simon but here are a list of possible replacements if that does happen and even the betting odds of them getting the job...lol. To be honest, the ONLY way that Idol could continue would be if Piers Morgan took his place. Even thats a longshot but at least Piers would keep it real. The rest of these people on this list? Simon Cowell leaving American Idol 447350

Piers Morgan +200 The only one who has a slim shot of taking Simons place. He keeps it real and blunt.
Sean "Diddy" Combs +200 uhhh no, we've seen enough of him? NEXT!
Quincy Jones +400 he's got the cred but probably not the personality or the bite
Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds +400 zzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Conan O'Brien +500 Ellen is enough comedy
Simon Fuller +600 Put him in the category of WGAF!
Paula Abdul +500 didn't we just get rid of her?
Russell Simmons +700 see Quincy Jones
Prince +800 would he even show up?
Ben Folds +800 who?
Elvis Costello +800 Love his music but don't see him as Idol material. too good for this show.
Carson Daly +1000 um just no!
Jon Gosselin +1000 is this a joke?

Where in the fuck did you get that horrid list from? haha

They need somebody who isn't afraid to sugar coat it, cut to the chase and tell it like it is... probably Kathy Griffin but we already have a comedian.

It doesn't matter whoever they get for Simon's spot I'm sure they won't be able to reel me back in.

Kathy Griffin?? seriously?

Yup, if he leaves, its over. Piers might be able to bring the "real" but he might not be able to save the show. Maybe he if told Kara to EADAD, I might be persuaded to watch then...LOL!!!
