If they were smart and wanted to keep the type type of mentality that Simon Cowell brings to show they would hire Hugh Laurie from House and let him run wild.

I think Elton John would be the best and most excellent choice to replace Simon,since EJ KNOWS music and has been responsible for cultivating and supporting new talent for years PLUS he has the sharp,quick-witted British mind and tongue who can talk circles around even the most seasoned debaters!We should start a petition online for all others who agree with me that Elton would be a great and entertaining asset to the AI judging panel...and besides Ellen DeGeneres is a HUGE Elton John fan and they would work well together!Just sayin'....Fingers crossed here in Calgary!!!
