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 fromÂ American Idol as guest stars. That’s right.Â Ryan Seacrest,Â Ellen DeGeneres,Â Simon Cowell,Â Kara DioGuardi, andÂ 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 MoeÂ Syzslak’s quest to replace acerbic British judge,Â Simon Cowell, on theÂ 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 joinÂ Ryan Seacrest,Â Ellen DeGeneres,Â Simon Cowell,Â Kara DioGuardi, andÂ Randy Jackson on the set ofÂ American Idol.
This won’t be the first timeÂ Simon Cowell has allowed himself to be animated for theÂ 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.
