London, (ANI): America's Got Talent judge Piers Morgan has dismissed rumors that he will replace Simon Cowell on American Idol. The TV personality clarified that it will never happen.
"A report in the New York Post has me down at 2-1 favorite to replace Simon Cowell if he leaves American Idol," the Daily Express quoted him as saying. He added: “It's never going to actually happen, obviously, as following The Master on that show would be like following Sinatra at the Sands (Las Vegas resort)."
However, Morgan joked Cowell will be unimpressed to hear him named as a possible successor. He added: " The mere fact that anyone is even suggesting it will make him fall off his Barbados sunbed."
