According to rumors, the next judge who will replace Simon Cowell will be the rock singer Chris Isaak, known especially for his hit “Wicked Game.”
The rumors are fueled by the fact that he has met twice with those of Fox.
Chris Isaak, along with music, has appeared over the years in numerous television series such as “Eastwick”, “Cold Case”, “Smallville” and in his own television show, “Chris Isaak Show”. Another singer, Harry Connick Jr., was also considered.
Even rocker Bret Michaels would like the role of judge for “American Idol”, even making lobby last week in an interview for Headline News (“I would love to do it, I would really bring it to the table”, Michaels told Joy Behar). Some sources, however, say that Michaels doesn’t have any chances in the race.
In addition, Donald Trump lobbied to replace Simon Cowell, despite his long association with NBC as a producer and judge of “The Apprentice”.
While Fox insisted that no decision is imminent, network entertainment president Peter Rice said that until the beginning of September, the new judge will join the Caravan.
They want the “American Idol” judge to be similar to “X Factor” Simon Cowell. In many ways, Fox tries to realize who is the right “piece”, a delicate process, considering the long-term tension between Cowell and the executive producer of “American Idol, Simon Fuller.
