Well, the rumor is true my dear friends. American Idol fans – - brace yourself. First, Paula Abdul and now, Simon Cowell. Hmmmm. I wonder what the show’s going to be like.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Ellen Degeneres and I think she’s a great contribution to the show. However, Paula’s crazy crocodile tears and “always nice” reviews together with Simon Cowell’s “brutal-but-honest-reviews” make a great show.
Ryan Seacrest sent a tweet saying,
“this is simon’s last season on idol. He’s working on US version of x-factor! He is one of the most brilliant people in our biz! Congrats”.
“i’m gonna interview simon tomorrow on the radio show…will ask him if @paulaabdul will be on x-factor. I’ll link u guys audio after.”
Simon Cowell will leave after this season and then, he will be a judge on X-Factor (and producing it as well).
Ellen says she is not taking Simon’s departure personally though.. ha! As she announced the news to her audience, she joked around about it but wished Simon well. There are also rumors that Simon Cowell is courting Paula Abdul to be a judge on X-Factor. Hmmm… funny how events turn huh?
