Shortly after American Idol’s season ended there were rumors that Jennifer Lopez was leaving the show, and today E! is reporting who they hear might replace her and possibly also Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson. The first name they mentioned was season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert. He’s the only contestant to have a #1 album since season 5 winner Carrie Underwood, but is that a reason to hire him for the job? Personally I can’t stand him and I think he would be bitchy just to be bitchy. Seriously when I read he was the only name mentioned, I was so happy I gave up the show last year. I know I am supposed to support my Bronx brethren, but I just couldn’t do it. Sorry Steven, I still have Riverdale pride for you in every other way.
Now as upset I was to only see his name being consider another E! reporter threw out some more names. Watch with Kristin
added a few more singers to hat, she said that the Fox big wigs are also considering Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Fergie, Katy Perry and will.i.am for the job. If you remember back when Simon Cowell, Kara Dioguardi and Ellen DeGeneres left the show, there were so many names mentioned you never knew was going to be the new judges on the singing competition. Well I think it is going to be the same here.
Now when it comes to The X Factor Mark Malkin
, he has a few names on how might host the fall singing competition. The list includes George Clooney’s flavor of the year Stacy Keibler, Khloé Kardashian Odom, Kelly Osbourne, Mario Lopez, BET’s 106 & Park host Terrence J, Erin Andrews, who just left ESPN for Fox Sports and Dancing with the Stars and The Choice loser Mike Catherwood. So what do I think of that group of people? I think I am so happy I didn’t watch that show because they are annoying people who, for the most part, I didn’t like on DWTS and I wouldn’t like as hosts for the show.
I guess Fox is going for the younger names, but does that mean they are qualified. For the most part, I don’t think they are.
