Simon Cowell Reacts To American Idol Cancellation, Says He Had A ‘Blast’

After FOX confirmed the news that American Idol will be pulled from its schedule after its 15th and final season next year, Simon Cowell responded and said that he had a ‘blast’ on the show.

Cowell joined the show in 2002 and was a mainstay on the judging panel until 2010 when he left to launch the American version of The X Factor.

In a statement, Cowell remembered the ‘great times’ he shared with the show’s entire crew.

“We had a blast! Me, Paula, Randy, Ryan — and not forgetting Brian. Thanks to the fans we were able to make some great shows and found some amazing artists,” he said. “Fox took a risk on a brand new show and I want to thank them for giving us the opportunity. They really were great times.”
