And while the man himself has yet to stand up and declare that he is indeed leaving, his brother Tony Cowell let the cat out of the bag on his radio show “Fame Game.”

“Meanwhile, Simon prepares for a new season of Idol, or should I say his last season of Idol – OK, I will, because it is,” Tony said. “As I sit here in the sunny Caribbean with my family, a press statement is being prepared which will confirm what everyone expected: Simon will leave Idol at the end of 2010 to concentrate on bringing the American version of The X Factor to U.S. TV in 2011.”

    It is happening whether we like it or not. Simon Cowell’s leaving American Idol. Now there will be officially no reason to watch the show, because the only redeemable feature OF the show is the auditions and watching him rip people to shreds. (That’s the only thing that makes it fun.) That said, he will be bringing X Factor over to the US, but X Factor is essentially the same show, and if they find the right replacement, Idol producers won’t need payday loans to keep it afloat
