Simon Cowell announced that he is leaving American Idol to be a judge on The X Factor, and now he is talking to fellow AI alum Ryan Seacrest.

Simon called into the 102.7 KIIS FM show On Air with Ryan Seacrest just one day after he announced his departure from AI.

Ryan and Simon discuss the details of who might take Simon's spot as a judge and who would get his swanky trailer after he leaves.  They also talk about what it is going to be like this last year knowing that he will be leaving.  Both agree there is a degree of sadness and Simon talks about what he will miss most.  They also talk about Paula Abdul and if she is going to judge on The X Factor!
