[ # ] It is a no from Simon Cowell
May 11th, 2017 under American Idol 9+, Simon Cowell

ABC picked up American Idol for a 16th season this week and they are having a problem finding people from the Fox version to join their show.

The Voice announced in the last 2 days that they hired Oscar winner and American Idol season 3 contestant Jennifer Hudson and the original American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson as coaches for their upcoming seasons. That means those are two alumni that they cannot hire for Idol.

What about their most famous and loved judge Simon Cowell? He told Extra they asked him, but he told them “no”. They he explained why, “I have no interest. My memories are when we first started. It was a different time with Randy [Jackson], Ryan [Seacrest] and Paula [Abdul]. You can’t recreate that.” He also revealed to Terri Seymour that he left the show for a reason and has not regrets for doing so.

What about host Ryan Seacrest? He told Extra, “I would love to do it, but I got this job right now.” Of course that job is Live with Kelly and Ryan. My theory is he wants his old salary and ABC doesn’t want to pay him twice. Therefore, money not time is ABC’s biggest problem with him signing on for the reboot.

Who can Idol get? I am sure they can Randy Jackson, because what else is that dog doing? When it comes to the other possible Judges, I am sure they can get William Hung and Sanjaya Malakar, That is if they can find them.

Granted after having said all of this, I think that American Idol should start completely over. New faces would be a good thing.
