Stick a Fork in Idol – Simon Cowell leaves Fox Show to create X-Factor for US – January 12, 2010

Wanna bet Paula Abdul is announced as a new judge on Mr. Cowell’s X-Factor show?

Who is Randy Jackson going to duel with this year?

Turning down as much money as he did to continue with Idol is probably peanuts compared to owning X-Factor  which will also run on Fox.


“I said years ago that I was going to leave at the end of this contract period,” Cowell told reporters in Pasadena, Calif.

“Everyone thought I was negotiating. I was not.”

Fox has agreed to broadcast “The X Factor” in a deal that was signed early yesterday morning.

“There has been a lot of speculation [about “The X Factor”] partly because we didn’t have an agreement,” Cowell said.

Fox plans to air both talent shows — “X Factor” in the fall of 2011 and “Idol” in the winter.”

So Cornwall will you watch both shows?  Will you watch either shows?

Does anybody really care about any of this anymore?

  1. According to the CTV Nes this morning, Simon Cowell hasn’t left yet. He will be leaving after this season closes. I think American Idol and The X Factor are great entertainment for everyone.
