Simon Cowell To Quit “American Idol” To Bring “X Factor” To The US

First Paula Abdul leaves American Idol and now Simon has confirmed that he will leave American Idol after this season.  Simon  has agreed  to a deal with American broadcaster Fox to launch the entertainment show  "X-Factor" in the US next year.

Of course a good incentive to leave American Idol is that Simon will earn more money with the move. This is because he produces and owns the format to The X Factor, unlike American Idol.   On the US version of X factor Simon will serve as a judge and excutive producer on the show.  The American version of X Factor is expected to launch August 2011.
