Yeeeah, they're probably more likely to get Jamie than Madonna!
Simon Fuller and everyone over at American Idol is wondering what to do when Simon Cowell leaves the show next year for The X Factor. A source tells Life & Style that AI was "desperate for Simon to stay. They told him to name his price, but he still walked away."
Additionally, the insider reveals that "Simon hope to blow American Idol out of the water with X Factor." So what's AI to do? Get an even better host to bring ratings up!
Actor slash singer Jamie Foxx, as well as Interscope co-founder Jimmy Lovine, are both strong contenders for the job... but "Madonna would be a dream," says Idol creator Simon Fuller.
Who would you rather replace Simon Cowell on American Idol?
