Is Simon Cowell Nearing His American Idol Exit?

Simon CowellAlthough many out there would be perfectly happy with one job, has fronting at least three for some time now. But is this something the 49-year-old expects he can do indefinitely?

In an interview with the Daily Mirror, Simon said it might not be realistically possible to maintain his work schedule on and his two UK programs. “It takes longer and longer to make these shows because you have to put more into them, and I am not sure we can sustain me doing three shows a year, with the record label and the TV production company,” he explained.

But is Cowell seriously contemplating change (he does wear the same shirt every week), or is he just gearing up for another contract negotiation? “Most people do one show a year and I do three and they involve a lot of travelling. One may have to go. I don’t know which one. That is the problem, I like all of them. I can’t imagine not doing Britain’s Got Talent and I can’t imagine not doing X Factor. But I guess America is more likely to go because I have got one year under contract. Maybe that will be the end,” the judge hinted.

And while constant traveling might seem tiresome to some (he is known to take four transatlantic flights a week during the summer), Simon fully recognizes what he has. “I don’t want to come over as whiney because I am very grateful that I have got these jobs,” he clarified.
