Madonna is set to replace Simon Cowell on 'American Idol'?
According to reports Heraldsun.com.au. the 51- year old The Queen of Pop tops producer’s wish list to take the music mogul’s place on the judging panel.
However, the Idol's 9 long years judge Simon Cowell tells the press that neither Madonna nor Howard Stern could replace him as a judge. The acerbic British judge, who's leaving the hit Fox competition at the end of the season to helm a U.S. version of "The X Factor" was grilled by reporters yesterday about who could fill his shoes.
“Everyone agrees Madge would be great and they want her as a full-time judge. But if that fails they’d at least like her as a mentor.” quoted Nydailynews.com.
Simon shrugged off talk about Stern and labeled Madonna a pipe dream, but said gossip blogger Perez Hilton, who has his own music label under Warner Music Group, might be a good fit.
