      really.

      wow that's too bad. yes he was a jerkface, but he was a damn entertaining jerkface yikes

      it already sucks without Paula.

      they better have some outrageously talented contestants to make up for it...

    Hey, I happen to like Simon. I know he's rude and everything, but he's really smart and I have yet to disagree with him on anything he's said on the show.

      I'll miss his reviews - I nearly always agree with him, but as a person he's not my cup of Java!

    The guy is a money machine. He's got to be a multi millionaire by now!
    Personally, I think he's no better than worse than other critics, but he has the reputation now. Good luck to him. I couldn't do his job. I'd tell everyone they were good even when they were red rotten just because I don't like the thought of hurting someone's feelings - oh except when I was a karaoke compere - I used to tell folk they were the worst I'd ever heard etc but they thought I was joking! lol

    Aww, Simon was always my favorite, although I stopped watching after Kelly Clarkson beat Justin Guarini. He is the one who makes the show entertaining, in my opinion.

    Is he really leaving? That could be a great tragedy, I think that he is part of what makes the show worth watching.

    Fox can hire me to replace Simon for 1/10th of his salary.

    the rumor is that Simon will be starting his own American version of his Xfactor show, and he will be recruiting Paula. i think American Idol will be dead after that.

      Cosette:
      I have to agree. I loved "nasty" Cowell and "sweet" Paula.
      They made the show "work."
