The Next 'American Idol' Judges: You Decide! (PHOTOS)

With the abrupt departures of American Idol judges Ellen DeGeneres and Kara DioGuardi this week—along with the ongoing search for Simon Cowell's replacement—it's anybody's guess as to who'll be mentoring the next generation of aspiring music superstars.

Many names have been mentioned, but while the final decisions are hashed out, we thought we'd open the floor to you, dear reader.

Click through the photo gallery to see the current candidates for the gig, as well a a few of our own suggestions. Let us know which ones you'd like to see on the judges' panel in the comments section. And if there's someone else that you'd rather see get the job, let us know that too.

    Can you stop being such a jerk? Just cause someone likes old music, doesn't mean that you should like every old dude, like, Chris Isaak. And just cause she said he's creepy looking, doesn't mean she insulted him. I only know him because of Liv Tyler, so go ahead, whatever, give me sh*t cause I don't give a sh*t about him ;) LOL you sound absurd... "And just cause she said he's creepy looking, doesn't mean she insulted him" If someone said to you "You look like a rapist" you won't get insulted right?I mean it's not an insult nor is stupidity a bad thing. ;)

    She would need a very high chair to be able to see the faces of the contestants. She should go back to the jungle.

    I bet there are hotter un-famous guys,that you just don't know about. Haha I agree! He's hot but so overrated.

    She'll get fired from day 1 for bringing her drugs with her.

    f*cking ugly. She isn't ugly.. Just cause she's older and overweight?

    He's too busy for American Idol, Jessica Biel keeps him busy. If they're still together :)

    I'm not glad if you're going to use their names just to seem in some way better than some other teenager your age.What bothers me is your attitude.I was also born it the 90's so in this case your age is no excuse for your lack of knowledge.

    How can someone without talent judge someone's talent? She too could strip for entertainment. AGAIN, HELL NO!!!!!

  • !
    !

    Hey, she could throw the f-bomb around with every second word!!!!!

  • !
    !

    Well, she can always strip in front of the performers. Soryy, that's a big fat HELL NO

    who the f*ck is that? Curt Corbain's (Nirwana) widow

  • !
    !

    WTF... She's be to drugged out to even comprehend what's going on... SO, Cortney, lovie, that would be a definite NO.

  • !
    !

    YES, YES, YES, and HELL YES!!!!! I would audition just to be in the same room with him and have him talk to me. lol He has mad talent, I love his voice.

  • !
    !

    HELL NO!!!!!! And he is an authority on music how????

  • !
    !

    It would be quite interesting. She would put Paula's little black-outs to shame. And she has talent on top of it. Again, beauty should not have anything to do this judging. But, No, I don;t think she would do well......

  • !
    !

    f*cking ugly. That's so uncalled for!!!!!!! She is not participating in a beauty contest. She is supposed to judge people auditioning. Just because she isn't pretty doesn't mean that she can't be a fair judge.

  • !
    !

    Another possibility, he has talent and can sing. Love him!

  • !
    !

    Now that's a possibility.

  • !
    !

    WTF????Hell No???? Stick with your ....whatever it is you do, other than music????

  • !
    !

    AND WHY???? SHE HAS NO TALENT HERSELF, HOW CAN SHE JUDGE SOMEONE ELSE'S TALENT?????

  • !
    !

    HELL NO!!!!!!

Like I said,I'm not a music expert,especially in rock bands,I'm not from US and we have our own music,so I can tell you the whole history about Bosnian rock music..So we aren't exactly on the same level aren't we?

    I was born in 90' so should be glad that I know some quality music and bands...I'm not a music expert,and I wasn't born back then,but at least I know the difference between Justin Bieber and Axl Rose.

    I highly doubt you know more than 2/3 songs by each one of those bands.I'm a huge fan of all of them and still know who Gary is and most importantly do not insult Steven Tyler.I even doubt you know more bands like them.

    I read somewhere...a few people said you should f*ck off and listen to pop and you said that you listened to old music.Are you sure??? You insulted Aerosmiths vocalist and you do not know who Chris Isaak is.... Yeah I'm going to say it in a little more different way: "f*ck off and before you lie about something at least think a little" Sorry for that,I'm more for Guns N Roses,Led Zeppelin and Kiss.
