London, (ANI): Poison singer Bret Michaels may replace Simon Cowell
in the next edition of American Idol. The rocker is currently
recuperating from a brain haemorrhage and a recent stroke. He
impressed both fans and judges when he took to the stage on the
reality show, disregarding doctor"s advice, for a rendition of
'Every Rose Has Its Thorn" with finalist Casey James.
"Actually, he'd be good. He's funny. He's got experience. He'd
be a good choice - and you saw the audience reaction to him. They
love him," the Daily Express quoted Cowell, as saying. Michaels
hopes to occupy the judge"s chair next year. He said: "I'm sorry he
(Cowell) has to go but sometimes things happen. Provided my health
holds up, I think I'm taking that chair next year!"
