The American Idol judges’ panel shakeup has brought us plenty of big names that could possibly replace Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez, both of whom announced last week that would not be returning to the popular singing competition. J LO even went as far as to name a few big celebrities who she feels would make good choices, but is there anyone who could possibly breathe new life into the show?
Rumor has it that since both Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez stepped down from American Idol, the producers are scrambling to find replacements. Since then, heck, even before then, there were plenty of rumors going around as to who may be stepping in to join the Idol panel. Of those rumored, we heard Charlie Sheen, Aretha Franklin, Fergie, even Idol alum, Adam Lambert, who dismissed those rumors to be just that – rumors.
With stiff competition from both The X Factor and The Voice, American Idol needs to do something to save the show – and soon! As we recently reported, US Weekly claims that Mariah Carey is in talks with the show, but then Nick Cannon came out and made a statement claiming that Idol may not be able to pay his wife enough – ouch! Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez had her own ideas as she recently revealed that some of the folks who would be a good addition would be: Bono, Jon Bon Jovi, or Mick Jagger.
While any of those three would make a good replacement for Steven Tyler, we can’t help but lean toward Jon Bon Jovi. Why? Well, he has the look, the like-ability, and the success. With hundreds of millions of fans, he could possibly have many of those people tuning in to the show…But would he ever do it? Possibly – can we beg the Idol gods to throw him an offer?
With so many names on the table, we have to ask – who do you think would make a great addition to the American Idol panel? Comment and share your thoughts with us below!
