Cowell was one of the original judges on American Idol, appearing on the show between 2002 and 2010.
During a panel for America’s Got Talent last week, Cowell said he might not make it for the big American Idol finale, saying there “is a date clash” and he doesn’t know yet if he’ll go.
Earlier, we reported that his fellow co-judge, Paula Abdul, will appear in the finale alongside previous winners Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood.
The three-night American Idol finale begins on April 5th, at 8 p.m. ET/PT, on FOX.
What do you think? Were you a fan of Simon on American Idol? Will the finale be the same without him?
