Video: Simon Cowell Says American Idol Is "Better" Without Him This Season — Agree or Disagree?

Simon Cowell stopped off to chat with his good friend Piers Morgan in an interview that airs on Monday. The former American Idol star is currently preparing for the Fall release of his new show, The X Factor, with judge rumors all over ranging from Jessica Simpson to Mariah Carey. Simon spoke about his former gig, which narrowed the field down to 12 last night, saying that the new fresh faces and formula are already a winning combination. He said, "They've got their energy back, and their confidence." So what do you think, is AI better this season?

The contestants this season suck minus the country boy and the gospel guy. Simon would've been honest, and thats not what the 15 year olds can handle.

I totally agree ^^ Steven and Jennifer are just too nice and they lack words, their excuses always are that I can't judge you the performance was too good, or just wow, Randy is the only one talking about their singing. Jennifer and Steven are fun but they don't know how to judge properly. Simon would have ripped most of the contestants apart.
