American Idol judge Simon Cowell really knows how to create a buzz! At a press conference for the show yesterday, the British meanie had this shocker: he will be leaving the judges table after the latest season! Simon has been threatening to leave the show for years, but no one believed he actually would, because we all know how much Simon loves the spotlight! Simon announced a second surprise too, he is bringing his other hit British reality show, "X Factor" to the US next year! So we haven't seen the end of Simon yet, and rumour is Simon's old Idol judge buddy Paula Abdul will be involved in X Factor too in some way, because Simon says he misses her, aw sweet!

American Idol finalist Adam Lambert was given the honour of performing the closing act for the Awards show as he is launching his debut album at the moment.
