Washington (ANI): 'American Idol' judge Simon Cowell has requested Michael Jackson to think about coming on the talent show before he goes for his comeback tour in London this summer (09). The tough judge has even told the 'Thriller' hitmaker that he'd be foolish not to perform on the hit programme.
Jackson has announced a 50-date residency at London's 02 Arena, which begins in July. And music mogul Cowell has urged the King of Pop to thrill the nation with a showcase on Idol first. "It's the best platform he can have in America right now. He'd be stupid not to do it," Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
