“I don’t really have any involvement in that show, other than my time spent on it, which is a good memory,” Cowell said. “I doubt very much I would ever be involved in that show again. The thing about that show was, sometimes you just create magic without realizing you’re creating it, whether it was the producers, the judges, the host — everything just worked. And one by one everybody left and you could feel it coming. It was like because there is not much of a format with Idol. … For me, Idol is a memory, a great memory at the beginning.”
