Simon Cowell Will Not Return to 'American Idol' Reboot

Simon Cowell has officially broken his silence on the American Idol reboot that is heading to ABC.

The 57-year-old TV personality spoke with Extra and said that he has no plans of returning for the reboot set to premiere in 2018.

“I was asked to do it, and the answer is no,” Simon said.

Simon was one of the original judges alongside Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson when the show first premiere in 2002.

“I have no interest,” Simon said. “My memories are when we first started. It was a different time with Randy, Ryan [Seacrest] and Paula. You can’t recreate that.”

Simon is now currently a judge on America’s Got Talent.

“Last time I watched [Idol], it was not the same show, just the same name. I left for a reason and I never regretted that.”
