Who could have ended up an ‘American Idol’ judge

HollywoodNews.com: ‘American Idol’ has sort of been reborn after Simon Cowell decided to leave, but it sounds like the show could have been very different if other judges had been chosen.

It is being revealed that Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez weren’t the immediate choices for the show, states The Hollywood Reporter. Mariah Carey, Shania Twain and Harry Connick Jr. were reportedly on a list of over 40 people being considered.

However, Lopez was also on that list and made the cut, but Tyler was randomly suggested and apparently pretty much got the role upon meeting with executives.

Do you think anyone else would have been better?

    ‘Idol’ made the right decision with Steven Tyler–having a real rockstar as a judge gives the show more gravitas. If they could have enlisted Mariah Carey or Shania Twain, that would have also given the show more heft. J-Lo is more of a performer–not a real music artist or singer; her stuff seems dated.
