Despite me considering myself as the
Simon Cowell of driving
I'm not suggesting me, despite liking many types of music
It's not my thing to judge singers
Here are my 3 choices and why:
Quentin Tarantino, has already been a guest judge and a mentor on American Idol, is obviously opinionated, and knows music like almost no other movie director, and besides it may prevent him from making movies I don't watch anyway.
Hugh Laurie, plays Dr. House, all music on that show is decided by him, he also has his own band, and just like Simon, he's British.
David Foster, there isn't a soul in the industry with more music ability and genius than David Foster, many big time artists were produced by him, and he's no stranger to judging or mentoring singers on reality shows like American Idol and Nashville Star, he literally is music.
I did not number them, because any one of them would be a fine replacement. If they choose them because I said so, then I wouldn't mind the credit.
