Simon Cowell considers ditching ‘American Idol’



"American Idol" judge Simon Cowell is considering quitting the popular TV show after another season, he told CNN.

Cowell, who judges three shows — “American Idol,” “Britain’s Got Talent” and “X Factor” — told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper that he’s not sure he can keep up the pace and “one may have to go.” “Right now, the only certainty is that I’m still on ‘Idol,’ still love doing it, and still have a year under contract,” Cowell told CNN in a statement. “While I am looking at all options for the future, I haven’t made any decisions,” the statement read. Though he has a great attachment to “American Idol,” Cowell said, “at some point, a decision will have to be made.” Cowell, 49, has been with the show since its first season in 2002.
