Simon Cowell May Leave American Idol in 2010

Would You Watch American Idol Without Simon?

First Paula, now Simon? Rumor has it that the upcoming season of American Idol could be the swan song for the show's most critical judge. His brother, Tony Cowell, mentioned in his weekly podcast that the 2010 season of Idol will be Simon's last. He said, "A press statement is being prepared which will confirm what everybody expected: Simon will leave Idol at the end of 2010 to concentrate on bringing the American version of X Factor to U.S. TV in 2011."

Simon himself didn't comment in the podcast, though he did talk about X Factor earlier in the segment. We've heard these rumors before, but this has me a bit worried — can Idol survive without Simon? Would the execs at Fox be able to find a suitable replacement? What's your take — would you watch American Idol without Simon?

IF they replace him with a fantastic and feisty judge, I'll watch.

Nope. If Simon decides to leave they should just end the show for good. There is no AI without Simon.
