Though we thought by his tune that Bret Michaels to replace Simon Cowell on American Idol , two new names have appeared in the mix, with one getting a praise from Cowell himself.
Former Idol contestant Adam Lambert, and Harry Connick Jr. are among the new names being tossed around, along with Michaels, who all but announced he had signed the contract.
Though we find it hard to believe Lambert would be called for the job, or would want to take time from his hot-right-now career to do the job, Connick Jr. is an interesting choice.
He mentored the contestants last season, and Simon Cowell thinks he has the edge over his competitors!
Cowell tells OK! Magazine: “I wouldn’t be surprised if it was Harry Connick, Jr. He was a great mentor when he was on, and he knows music.”
So did something happen with Bret Michaels that he’s out?
Who do you want to see as the new judge on Idol?
