American Idol and X-Factor Still Looking For Replacements

American Idol is already on the look-out for some possible new judges even though the bosses at AI still hope that J.Lo will return. Names in consideration include Adam Lambert, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Fergie, Katy Perry, and Will. I. Am. An Idol insider came out stating, “No one has signed any contracts yet and producers are currently putting out feelers and setting up meetings to see who they can get. We won’t know if Randy [Jackson] and Steven [Tyler] are returning until they see who else is on board.” Auditions for the 12th season of American Idol are currently underway with the producer’s rounds with no judges in attendance. But there are only 3 more cities to go so the clock is ticking on finalizing the judges table. Over on X-Factor replacements for the two vacant judging positions were filled a long time ago of course by Britney Spears and Demi Lovato but Simon Cowell has yet to find a replacement for Steve Jones as host of the show when it returns for its second season. Sources say that Cowell wants to return to his original plan of having two hosts; one male and one female. At the moment many names are being tossed around with hopefuls including George Clooney’s gf Stacey Keibler, Khloe Kardashian Odom, Kelly Osbourne, Mario Lopez, and Erin Andrews. A source claims Cowell isn’t rushing to fill the slots. “They’re doing the auditions without a host so it’s no big deal they don’t have hosts right now,” the source said. “Simon really wants to take his time. The two-person thing didn’t work out the first time and he wants to make sure it works this time.” Stay tuned with official news on replacements for both singing competition shows.
