Howard Stern on American Idol? Not so much...but Elton John, maybe..

For the past week much has been said about the possibility of Howard Stern possibly being courted to replace Simon Cowell when he leaves American Idol after this season. Personally, that would get me to start watching again. But over the past couple of days Ellen and the other lady judge (I have no idea what her name is, but I loved watching the clips of of Katie Perry taking her down this season) have voiced their dis-pleasure in this. Some reports say that FOX thinks his more then likely clashing with the ladies and blunt remarks would be great television.

A few weeks back TMZ reported that FOX was initially speaking with Elton John to take his place. That story was quickly dismissed by Elton's peeps. But just this week Ralph Garman, entertainment reporter for the Kevin and Bean morning radio show on KROQ in L.A., cited a source close to the situation saying that they are indeed talking with Elton and leaning towards him as the new judge. Nothing has been confirmed by FOX yet, but the season has just started and they probably won't announce anything until later in the season. So in the meantime, we'll just laugh at Ryan Seacrest trying to high five a blind guy.

  1. Howard Stern is not bad at all, however there is more talented persons across the world to do this job. really I'll prefer another person for this job.
