Sly as a Foxx: Here’s the Latest Hot Rumor of Who Will Replace Simon Cowell

May 5, 2010  •  Post A Comment

The fact that this is Simon Cowell’s final season on Fox’s "American Idol" has lead to speculation about how might fill his seat, and the current hot name is Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx, reports TV Guide.

The publication quotes music industry experts that say the singer-actor is the top choice for Fox.

Jamie has guested on the show as a mentor and is a popular recording artist as well as a top box office star.


  1. I vote for Harry Connick, Jr. He was AMAZING last night on the show – what a guest mentor really should be (sorry Miley Cyrus… LOL). But I doubt that Harry needs the gig.

  2. Why on earth would an oscar winner want to tie himself down to Idol? Between movies and recording, I’m sure his plate is full and he’s not going to pass up being on location with a big film to judge pitchy teenagers.

  3. Why is the show allowing an Actor to be a Judge?

  4. The reason that Simon Cowell is so good on American idol is that when it comes his turn to speak…..he just lays it on the line…without sugar coating it…..it is like tough love……he wants to see each contestant do their best…and go as far as possible….So we as an audience wait to hear what he has to say…because we know that he will tell it as it is…and explain why in layman terms so that we understnad it….and the contestant understands it.

  5. I love the expression. Everyone needs to express there own opinion and feel free to hear others. Keep it up 🙂

  6. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one these days.. 🙂

  7. I love the way you write and also the theme on your blog. Did you code this yourself or was it done by a professional? I’m very very impressed.

  8. Love all the opinions expressed here! How is everyone? Love how everyone expresses whatr they feel 🙂
