American Idol Judges To Appear On ‘The Simpsons’

April 12, 2010 07:00 AM by Nancy Floyd


The stars of American Idol will be appearing on another hit FOX show this May: The Simpsons! People magazine confirms that animated versions of Ryan Seacrest, Ellen DeGeneres, Simon Cowell, Kara DioGuardi, and Randy Jackson will all be featured in the season finale of the hilarious cartoon. Keep reading for more details on the finale’s premise and to find out which Idol star has voiced a Simpsons character in the past…

FOX‘s long-running, hit animated comedy, The Simpsons, is pulling out all the stops for its season finale this May. The cartoon will feature the judges and host from American Idol as guest stars. That’s right. Ryan Seacrest, Ellen DeGeneres, Simon Cowell, Kara DioGuardi, and Randy Jackson have all agreed to voice characters for an episode called “Judge Me Tender.”

The Simpsons’ season finale, which is scheduled to air May 23rd, follows bartender Moe Syzslak’s quest to replace acerbic British judge, Simon Cowell, on the American Idol judging panel. Apparently, Moe’s got quite a knack for discerning talent from crap. When he proves how much talent he possesses, he’s invited to join Ryan Seacrest, Ellen DeGeneres, Simon Cowell, Kara DioGuardi, and Randy Jackson on the set of American Idol.

This won’t be the first time Simon Cowell has allowed himself to be animated for the FOX cartoon. In 2004, Cowell voiced a character named Henry in an episode of The Simpsons titled “Smart and Smarter” about baby Maggie’s genius potential. This will, however, be the first time he’s played himself on the animated sitcom.

The Simpsons season finale, featuring the American Idol stars, airs on May 23 on FOX.

    If Idol believes the new web foramt is an improvement I believe they are mistaken. I feel it was more convenient to not only be able to scroll up and down all posts but to also be able to more easily refer to a post by the reference number Idol attached to each post. I dislike going page to page as if I were using Google. In addition why in the world would the word cl***, in my post to Simon D above, be altered to cl*** ?. Is the word cl*** offensive? In addition why don’t the heck they remove the ridiculous light blue rectangular bar they overlay in the Post a new comment space. The bar is reeeealy gettin under my skin.
