Jessica Simpson American Idol

Jessica Simpson is the newest celebrity name to be throwing into the American Idol judge rumor mill.  The pop star, turned reality star, turned country star might be looking to go more mainstream with a move to a slightly struggling Idol franchise.  With the return of former Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe the show is surely going to be shaken up.  Lythgoe has gone on record saying he would prefer a new judging panel.  However the only judge without a contract is Kara DioGuardi so unless the buy out Ellen DeGeneres and her multi-year contract there might not be much room for change expect replacing Simon Cowell. Reports are out saying that Idol would like to announce any new judges on Monday August 2.  Other rumored possibilities are Justin Timberlake, Elton John, and Brett Michaels has been very vocal about getting a shot of judging forgettable singers.
