Over the weekend Simon Cowell told British paper the Daily Mirror that if he could scratch projects off in either the UK or the USA, he'd scratch them off in the USA, hinting he'd leave American Idol and the USA behind.
"I don't want to come over as whiny because I am very grateful that I have got these jobs," he said. "But there is a point where I am not sure we can keep this schedule up.""Most people do one show a year and I do three and they involve a lot of traveling," he told the Mirror. "One may have to go ... I can't imagine not doing 'Britain’s Got Talent' and I can't imagine not doing 'X Factor.' But I guess America is more likely to go because I have got one year under contract. Maybe that will be the end."
