Will American Idol welcome new judges
Is it just one replacement or all four of them? We are talking about one of the greatest and biggest reality show, American Idol. The new list of the judges for 2011 season will be announced shortly, on Monday, if rumors are to be believed.
According to Nigel Lythgoe, one of the former executive producers, who himself made a come back in the show, he would want to see a new set of judges at the hot seats. This may draw a conclusion that there is not only the replacement of Simon Cowell, but also for the other three judges, Randy Jackson, Ellen DeGeneres, and Kara DioGuardi. However, it is better to mention here that Randy Jackson has a contract for another next year, and so is true for Ellen DeGeneres.
According to a close source of the show, singer, and actress, Jessica Simpson recently has met with the producers of American Idol. Jessica Simpson is famous for judging reality shows. And when she had a meeting with the producer, it automatically drew a conclusion that she could make an entry to the show as an honorable judge.
According to the same source, it is not clear whether the singer approached the producers or the producers approached the singer. The gossip magazine, Entertainment Weekly, “I’m not sure whether her people approached Idol, or if it was the other way around”, quoted him.
However, the source has also confirmed that there are a number of singers and celebrities, who are waiting for the hot seat and Jessica is just one of them. The final verdict is yet to come from the authorities of American Idol, probably on Monday.
Simon Cowell, the departing judge, announced to leave the show, as a judge after the ninth season was finished. He is presently busy in launching the US version of a popular British series, The X Factor. But currently, Cowell seems to be in jolly mood, which he wants to spend with her ex-girlfriends!
Cowell and his fiancée invited his ex-flames, Jackie St Claire and Sinitta to a 2,80,000 pound cruise trip! A close source to the former American Idol judge said, “Simon dearly loves both Jackie and Sinitta but was fed up with their petty, schoolgirl arguments.” He also added, “They had a long chat and are friends again. They've been laughing, giggling. and plotting against Simon. He almost wishes he hadn't bothered.”
A few months ago, Justin Timberlake and Elton John also met with the producers of the show. So, can we image the legendary singer Elton John on one of the judges’ seats? Well, if that so, Elton John, Jessica Simpson, and Justin Timberlake… this trio will be deciding the destiny of millions of aspiring singers in the coming season of American Idol.
