Justin Timberlake may be the next “Idol” judge

Will pop star Justin Timberlake replace Simon Cowell as the next judge in American Idol?

A list is currently being formed for the possible replacement of Simon since he left last season. The other judges rumored to take place on the American Idol judge box are: Chris Isaak, Harry Connick Jr., and Elton John.

In a report made by The Hollywood Reporter, Nigel Lythgoe, the former American Idol executive producer, is thinking about bringing Paula Abdul back on AI. He is also considering to get Usher to judge.

The sudden interest in changing the judges for AI was sparked due to the low ratings garnered last season. It is hoped that fresher and more interesting judges could ignite back the interest to American Idol.
