Sorry, Simon Cowell haters, you've still got a few more years with the honest judge.
Simon told our Extra reporter, and girlfriend, Terri Seymour that the clock on Idol is ticking for him, and that in a few years he'll leave the reality show.
So, when might American Idol contestants be free from his jabs and insults?
â€œThis is the year I decided that on American Idol, once Iâ€™ve done 10 series, your timeâ€™s up. Itâ€™s time to do something new,â€ he said.
But will he leave TV forever after that?
â€œI think Iâ€™d rather drop dead than retire," he said.
Son, don't worry fans, you'll be seeing plenty of Cowell on some stage for many years to come.
