Simpson For American Idol Judge?

JESSICA SIMPSON has emerged as the new favourite to take over from SIMON COWELL as a judge on hit TV talent show AMERICAN IDOL after JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE and SIR ELTON JOHN both rejected the role.
Speculation has mounted over who will fill the vacant judging seat following Cowell's exit from the programme earlier this year (10), with recent reports listing the SexyBack hitmaker and the Rocket Man as possible replacements alongside Harry Connick, Jr. and Chris Isaak.
Reps for both Timberlake and John moved quickly to shoot down the claims and now singer Simpson has become the latest celebrity touted for the job.
A source tells the blonde beauty has had "several meetings" with American Idol bosses and that there's "mutual interest" from both parties to bring Simpson on board.
An official announcement is not expected to be made until September (10).

I think Jessica Simpson would make a better substitute for Paula instead of Simon because she could easily be that the one who says incoherent sentences and not making any sense.

Please say it aint so!! If you want to see this show die on the vine, put her on it. PS: I like her, I lived in Plano, but she is not what the show needs to cover the big guys vacancy.
