What celebrity could possibly fill Simon Cowell‘s shoes as a judge on American Idol? Former Idol judge, Paula Abdul, thinks rocker Bret Michaels is the perfect candidate. Michaels is among the latest contenders allegedly in the running to become Cowell’s successor. Keep reading for more details on why Abdul thinks he’d be the right man for the job…

It seems that everyone has an opinion about who should replace Simon Cowell on the American Idol judging panel. With heavy hitters like Mariah Carey, Harry Connick Jr., and Jamie Foxx reportedly being considered, it’s no surprise that anticipation for the news is high. The world is waiting to see who will take over for Cowell on the hit singing competition. One person who is hoping to be considered, and garnering the support of former Idol judge, Paula Abdul, is rock star, Bret Michaels.

Michaels, recently a winner on Celebrity Apprentice, says he’d love to take the job and thinks he would do a fine job at it. It seems that Paula Abdul agrees. ”If he were to take that position I think he would be awesome at it because you’ve got to have a passion and love for music,” Abdul says about Michaels. ”It takes somebody who really, really understands young people to try to make the magic happen in those 30 seconds. [Bret] would fit the mold perfectly.”

Abdul isn’t the only American Idol star who thinks Michaels would do a great job. The rumors about him replacing Simon Cowell started when Simon himself gave the former Poison frontman his stamp of approval. “I was honored that Simon said that,” Michaels said “and I would be honored to do it.”
