Are You Ready to See Simon Move on From Idol?

Simon Cowell is currently taking a break from his rigorous work schedule by enjoying a shirtless vacation in the Caribbean, amid rumors this might be his last season with the show that made him so famous stateside. His brother Tony recently revealed on his British podcast that Simon has decided to leave American Idol next year! Tony 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 US TV in 2011."

If that proves to be true, we'll still have Simon on TV but AI will be considerably different without the no-nonsense judge. So, tell us — are you ready to see Simon move on from Idol

People have to realize AI would never be the same the day Paula left. Part of the reason why AI is such a huge hit is because the judges had such great chemistry. Paula,Randy and Simon were awesome together. When they added Kara it lost a lot of that. And now that Paula is gone everything is falling down like dominoes now. Simon is just abandoning a sinking ship. I would be surprised if Randy jumped ship too.

"American version of X Factor" = American Idol. No? Similar?

i think that it's about time that he moves on. i think that for the most part, the AI folks don't really make too much of themselves. there are a few that have made names of themselves, but on the whole, most are 'one hit wonders'.

Jaan, I agree. He is just another person full of insecurities. I am not talking about his positive remarks which is very little. I am talking about his need for attention when he refuses to constructively criticize participants. Negative criticisms teaches repeat of failure whereas positive reinforcement teaches participants to learn the positives and become better through practice. Everyone knows you get more attention with the negative vs positive. I get sick and tire of people of any position becoming famous through being an idiot. People go to a race and subconsciously hope for a wreck rather than great driving. Sick, but true.
