Coming this summer: The new “American Idol” judge

Hollywoodnews.com: What has audience’s biting their nails more than an “Inception” trailer?

What’s bigger news than “Twilight: Eclipse” and Lady Gaga’s supposed hermaphroditic characteristics?

Why, the announcement of who will replace Simon Cowell on “American Idol.”

Before summer is out, Fox is promising fans an announcement according to Digital Spy.

Auditions have been pushed back to July to give producers more time to negotiate with the prospective judge. Judges Randy Jackson, Ellen DeGeneres, Kara DioGuardi and host Ryan Seacrest are locked for next season.

Says Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly, “Once the season finishes, we’ll give Simon his send-off and then we’ll really have to sit down and focus on next year’s season.”

Fox chairman Peter Rice added that the new judge would provide “music credibility and incredible entertainment value.”

One grassy knoll theory being buzzed about on the internets is that Sir Elton John is a contender to fill Cowell’s spot.
