Justin Timberlake & Elton John: American Idol Judges?!

Justin Timberlake and the legendary Elton John might serve as judges on the upcoming season of American Idol.

THR is reporting Idol producer/19 Entertainment boss Simon Fuller is trying to woo the both of them into doing it.

After a two-year hiatus, reality producer Nigel Lythgoe is returning to executive produce Idol following the exit of top judge Simon Cowell.

“I would replace the entire judging panel,” Nigel told Zap2It in April. “I don’t think it really works replacing one person.”

Other names under consideration: Usher, Chris Isaak, and Harry Connick Jr.

WOULD YOU WATCH American Idol if Justin Timberlake and/or Elton John was a judge?

They are way too big to be regular judges.

I wouldn’t watch if Elton John.
My choices would be Justin Timberlake, Harry Conick Jr. and Usher

Harry Connick Jr. FTW !!!
