After Simon Cowell announced he was leaving American Idol in the most dramatic way possible—signing his new contract in front of the press—Ryan Seacrest quickly tweeted he was going to get to the bottom of Simon’s new project, the U.S. version of X-Factor, on his KIIS-FM morning show.
"i'm gonna interview simon tomorrow on the radio show...will ask him if @paulaabdul will be on x-factor," he tweeted.
