simon cowell american idol 320 2 'American Idol' poll: Should the show go on without Simon Cowell?What do you think, “American Idol” fans? Should the popular singing competition continue sans judge Simon Cowell? Vote now!

The New York Post has a piece with fans’ input about Simon Cowell’s possible departure from “American Idol” after the upcoming ninth season.

One fan tells the Post, “Frankly I couldn’t stand Simon Cowell this past season … his head
was so big it was in the clouds … I’m sure ‘American Idol’ will be
able to fill his spot with no issues.”

Rumors have been flying about Cowell’s intentions once the ninth “Idol” champion is crowed at the end of May, 2010. So far there is no official word regarding his plans, though we do know he wants to launch a U.S. version of his popular British show “The X Factor” and that FOX wants more seasons of “Idol” whether he returns or not.

What do you guys think? Can ‘American Idol” go on without Simon Cowell?
