American Idol is going way back to its overseas origins for this season's exit song.
The show has announced that Will Young's "Leave Right Now" will serve as the exit song heard after ninth-season contestants are eliminated from the competition.
Young won the first season of Pop Idol, the British reality competition that American Idol was based on, in February 2002 and "Leave Right Now" was the first single off his sophomore album "Friday's Child," which was released in late 2003.
