Now that Simon Cowell has announced he’s hightailing it out of American Idol this year, there has been an awful lot of speculation as to who will be taking his place. There was word that Poison frontman, Bret Michaels was being courted, but that is said to have ended. So who can take the place of Simon? Would you believe Chris Isaak?
The network is determined to land a widely known music industry figure for the post, and THR has learned that singer Chris Isaak has met twice with the network.[THR]
Another name in the running? Harry Conick, Jr.!
I just don’t see either of these two being cruel enough to the people on the show. I mean, they make good mentors, but I don’t know if they can be brutally honest.
I may have to start watching American Idol if either of these two men make it.
