“American Idol” is heading to ABC but iconic host Simon Cowell isn’t.

 “I have no interest,” he told Extra. “My memories are when we first started. It was a different time with Randy (Jackson), Ryan (Seacrest) and Paula (Abdul). You can’t re-create that.”

Ryan, of course, just landed a new gig as Kelly Ripa’s “Live” co-host.

No word on who will be shattering dreams or making them come true when “Idol,” which aired on Fox for 15 seasons, reboots on ABC
