Don’t expect to see Simon Cowell return for American Idol‘s final season.
Cowell, one of the original judges on the show, is telling Extra‘s Terri Seymour, he’s already said goodbye.
“Well, I kind of said goodbye however many years ago, you know,” he said.
When she asked if there’s any chance he’ll make an appearance for the final show he said, “I don’t really know, maybe I’ll flip a light switch off in the end or something.”
During the interview, Cowell also cleared up one rumor about his new life as a father. There have been many reports that he’s not on diaper duty, but he assures he’s changed “quite a few” for his one-year-old son, Eric.
