And then there was One

Yup. It’s happening. Simon Cowell is leaving his massive conglomerate American Idol after the current season, meaning only one of the show’s original 3 judges will remain. Ellen DeGeneres replaced Paula Abdul this season, and I for one, support this change, but Simon’s replacement will have bigger shoes to fill. Simon is leaving to launch and judge an American version of a similar show called X-Factor, which will also air on FOX.
I watched the premiere of season 9 tonight, and admittedly, found myself getting a bit excited about the show which Mr. Feeny and I both agree defined the last decade. Tune in tomorrow to see the Atlanta auditions.
Who should replace Simon? (I think P. Diddy or JC Chasez.) And will the show suffer greatly with his departure? What do you think?
