I'm kinda disappointed with this choice, I was hoping for Harry Connick Jr or Bret Michaels. Maybe just because I've heard both of them speak and I enjoy hearing what they have to say, I'll probably feel differently after I actually watch the show this season and see how Steven Tyler does. I wasn't sure about Ellen last year and ended up really enjoying her.

Why would Donald Trump be considered for this position?

Harry Connick, Jr. would be a good choice to go along with Steven Tyler. They are from different genres of music, both have a strong background and experience in the music field. I think that would be a great panel!! I'm excited about seeing who would be there. Ellen was fun, but for a true panel, I think it is necessary to have people who are in the music business to do the judging and not just tell what they like as a personal opinion.

How about stupid moronic Palin - she would fit in great since she is also not talented and cannot put together a sentence.

I needed a good laugh today thanks!!!!
I love the idea of having Bret Michaels or Steven Tyler. It would make the show worth watching again (for me anyway). Hopefuly we will see them both get a spot.

They should sign Shania, she did a good job last year. I also think Steven Tyler is a good pick.

Tyler? Selecting him just proves the show is ready to jump the shark. Bye, bye, American Idol. You should have quit on a good note.

I heard a half-joking suggestion at one time about Gene Simmons doing it. Actually, after I heard that, I thought that wasn't a half-bad choice because he would be blunt like Simon to some extent yet he's very smooth with his presentation of opinions. Could've been interesting. Hey, there isn't there two spots open this year??? Someone call Gene!

I don't mind Steven Tyler being a judge but I was hoping Bret Michaels would be a host I think he would be terrific and bring in more viewers, plus I think he's a stand up guy and would be able to give good advice to the idol contestants.

Bret Michaels should get the judge spot. He's new and old and earned it. Millions of people love him. Please, please, Bret Michaels and I'll promise to watch the show faithfully!
