'American Idol' Judge Problem Solved! 5 Replacements for Simon, Ellen & Kara

April Peveteaux

american idol new judgeHow hard is it to cast someone on American Idol, one of the most popular shows in television history? Extremely hard, apparently.

Mariah Carey would love to replace Ellen DeGeneres, if only she had the time. Jennifer Lopez was expected to take the place of Kara or Ellen, but Fox told her to take a hike when Jenny From the Block's demands got out of hand. It does look like Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler is coming on as the new Simon.

So we've got one, or two, depending if they replace both Kara and Ellen, slots left to fill. With all the divas in the music biz either refusing or campaigning for the position, Fox must be very confused right now.

It's okay AI team, I'm here to help you out. Here are five perfect options for new American Idol judges:

Steven Slater

The former JetBlue flight attendant is not afraid to say what's on his mind. Let's hope he'll add a new catch phrase to Idol: "Sorry, you m***** f*****, you've been Slater'd!"

Mel Gibson

The real "tough judge" will keep viewers tuning in every week just to see what pops out of his mouth next. Also, he's going to need the work.

Gisele Bundchen

She's already shown that she's an expert in judging.

Levi Johnston

Let's keep his decision-making in the realm of entertainment, not politics, shall we?

Lindsay Lohan

A perfect way to serve out her probation, with the entire world watching her multiple times per week. Plus, hopefully she'll say something crazy.
