Simon Cowell Turns Down Offer to Judge American Idol Reboot
In an interview with Extra TV, English reality television star Simon Cowell admitted that he was offered to once again be a judge in the upcoming reboot of “American Idol” and he, point blank said “No.”
ABC is the new home of the reality singing competition which is set to start in 2018 and the network is building up the show to be more formidable than when the show was on Fox.
Talking with Extra’s Terri Seymour about the possibility of being a judge in Idol, Cowell was candid in saying “I have absolutely no interest because my memories are when we first started – with me and Randy and Ryan and Paula – it was a different time and you can’t recreate that again.”
Terri continued prodding asking if Simon would be interested if the show would be composed of the original cast members – the celebrities he mentioned. Simon was quick on clarifying that he “left for a reason and I never regretted that.”
This must be a tough week for the people behind the “American Idol” reboot. Just yesterday, Kelly Clarkson, American Idol’s first champion and a highly-acclaimed singer-songwriter in the music industry, reportedly accepted a gig as a coach for season 14 of “The Voice.”
Idol has been wooing Clarkson to be a judge on its reboot in 2018 but everything will be for naught now that the pop star agreed to turn chairs with coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine.
Simon Cowell, down.
Kelly Clarkson, down.
The only flame left standing is Ryan Seacrest who is reported to be still in discussion about his possible “American Idol” return. Unfortunately, while the most celebrated Hollywood multitasker Ryan is interested, “Idol” still needs to find a way how to squeeze into Seacrest’s already jam-packed schedule.
