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."
