Bret Michaels had people talking last night as he made his return to the stage at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Biloxi, MS.

An audience member said "I figured he'd be wobbly and sitting on a stool. But he was energetic, running around the stage with his guitar." They also commented that it was like watching a Poison show "years ago."

And more surprisingly, right before he performed his classic tune Every Rose Has Its Thorn, he told the crowd:

"I can't say this is true yet, cause I don't know. Next year they asked me to possibly be the judge on American Idol."

What do U think? Could he be the next Simon Cowell?

    horrible choice. They need to cancel that show.



  2. 2

    He can't be the next Simon Cowell but he can be himself though..not sure if thats good enough but he's sure better than you!!! STOP IT ALREADY!
    NOONE! will want you on American Idol noone will even watch .
    You're pathetic like i have said before stop taking yourself soo seriously
    you're just a silly blogger who draws dicks on peoples faces.I seriously feel embarassed for you its pretty stupid how you're famewhoring yourself ..and #PerezForIdol will NEVER be a trending topic! your a loser! NOBODY LIKES YOU! people like celebs so get to doing what people want you to do ..write about celebs not about your loser self.



  3. 3

    This can't be true because rumour has it they will stick with 3 judges and have celebrity judges from time to time.



  4. 4

    Re: blahblah12 – then why are you on this site then? your pretty pathetic…



  5. 5

    I think anyone who uses this site to bash Perez have nothing better to do and are really pathetic… don't you people have jobs?



  6. 6

    Re: mlu007 – Ha good one. Mario looks like shit in that picture. Was that after that guy with the BEP's punched him in the face and he cryed like a baby? Frickin moron



  7. 7

    Re: SerenityMarie – It's Saturday you dumbass. Mario deserves every negative comment he gets.



  8. 8

    I'd prefer Bret Michaels as a judge over Perez any day!



  9. 9

    I think that was the hemorrhage talking.



  10. 10

    I think he would better than Kara…



  11. 11

    Perez, no one wants to see you on Idol. Just give it up already. I would rather see Bret, and that's not saying much…given his music career is pretty lame. Ellen, as much as I love her, was a stretch..I'm pretty sure they don't need another judge with absolutely no music/performing experience. Your weak ass "record label" does not a Idol judge make.



  12. 12

    Haters welcome; you know you made it when your hated. Go watch some Kat Williams and stop taking YOURSELVES so seriously.



  13. 13

    The show is dead anyhow. People will tune in hoping to see the top of Brett Michael's head blow off. That would be cool. One minute he's critiquing and the next minute he's on the floor drooling. It would serve him right.



  14. 14

    Yes, please oh please, anyone but Per-ASS.



  15. 15

    Re: SerenityMarie…we can have our own opinion if we want to, I'm not about to kiss Perez's ass. I enjoy the site, but don't have to agree to everything he posts. And the ame thing could be said about you….don't you have a job? That makes no sense.



  16. 16

    He is no Simon, and there is only so much sympathy for Brett Michaels that can turn into ratings. Really, you need a judge who has integrity and weight. In terms of saving Idol, the judges this year, including Simon, picked weak talent, and that crashed the ratings. There were people, including two sisters, who were invited to Hollywood that did not make the final cut for the show, but were far better than those who did make the cut, and I saw other instances of this. It makes you wonder what is going on here? Also, Ellen and the other female judge need to be fired from the show, as they pander to the crowd in order to stay in the good graces of the audience, instead of telling the truth about contestants, thus we get stuck with a lot of lackluster talent on the show because they don't have the courage to inform the audience that certain people aren't good enough to be on the show. Forget worrying about who is going to replace Simon, so much as worrying about getting qualified judges on the show who have educated opinions, and are willing to speak them for the betterment of the contestants, and the quality of the show.



  17. 17

    I have no idea who would be a good choice to replace Simon, as if anyone can. I say the show lasts one or two more seasons and it is bye bye idol…
    I want to see Simon hook up with looney paula on his new show…or i guess he could get another crazy D lister to do it with him. Paula looked mighty good on Idol the other night, didn't she? her surgeon most do awesome work!
    It's too late for Dolly and Joan Rivers but all celebs need to get her doc's name PRONTO! She looked refreshed and natural….that is what looks good!



  18. 18

    Re: SerenityMarie – WOW omg how original ..the amount of times people have been asked "then why are you on here".People like celebrity gossip we don't give a damn about pervez . I guess you do..which makes you even more pathetic then me and pervez put together.!..Btw nice glasses… i saw a pic of pervez wearing glasses like those once i guess he influences your life.



  19. 19

    He seems too nice but Ellen did it so he may do very well…..



  20. 20

    Sorry Perez but you will never be an American Idol judge! Bret Michaels is a fantastic choice! He knows his shit and he tells it like it is. You'd only support those that are "Out". I have nothing against gays and lesbiens (one of my dearest friends is gay) but you have your own agenda and it's not what the American public needs or wants. Why don't you just keep "reporting" the news, which of course you'll always be late reporting.



  21. 21

    It's a little hard to take him seriously because of Rock Of Love.. But there's no way i'm taking American Idol seriously next season so it's O.K. with me.. The guy was in a famous band so he has some credentials unlike Ellen



  22. 22

    i will never, ever watch if this happens. BOO



  23. 23

    Bret's a good choice, although he probably wouldn't be as "biting" as Simon. Also, for those of you who don't know already, Bret won the "Celebrity Apprentice" title recently and he is a force to be reckoned with!

    And stop saying nasty things about Perez who let's us all have our say here.



  24. 24

    Bret would be OK.
    Perez… seriously go fuck yourself. You a pathetic loser!



  25. 25

    People have every right to hate on Perez, since he went "kate Gosselin" on us and neglects the thing that made him "famous"…this blog used to be awesome, now its just copy and paste from other celeb blogs..and shameless plugging of himself. Seriously Perez, get back to doing what your good at, and it's NOT being a judge on Idol..



  26. 26

    Things that make you say humm



  27. 27

    Re: SerenityMarie – We all hate Perez. Come to our side and enjoy the bashing. Perez is a has been, a loser, pathetic, delusional, hypocrite… etc. Need I say more. Just look at the posts. Maybe 1 or 2 positive, the rest are all bashing the rump ranger.



  28. 28

    the show needs 3 judges..not 4. why is Kara there? shes not famous, she just sucks.



  29. 29

    Bret will do anything for $ and for a piece of ass. Plus anyone who can sleep with that many skanks obviously is unable to connect on a deeper level.



  30. 30

    Why does Perez think the world revolves around him all the time?He seems to think that he should be the only one everyone talks about.Perez should let others be ahead of him,once in awhile.Don't be so stuck on yourself that you and your opinion are all that matters and counts for anything.I can understand why he describes himself as Hollywood's Most-Hated Web Site.When your so narrow minded that you think no one else matters or their opinions count for anything.



  31. 31

    He's a much better choice then Perez. What does perez know about music?



  32. 32

    OK, I am so sick of all these has-been stories! He is way too celebrated right now. He wants attention so bad that he is willing to ruin his health for it.



  33. 33

    He had one or two crappy songs back in the 80's right? Well, hey it worked for Paula.



  34. 34

    i really hope its you. i think you have a real ear for music.



  35. 35

    THANK YOU, SHARON OSBOURNE!!



  36. 36

    Anyone's better than Perez.



  37. 37

    I actually think he would be a good choice. Randy has a sort of hip-hop, R&B, soul background. Kara has a more pop/dance background. Bret would be the guy with an in-depth knowledge of rock music. Ellen is the objective judge who likes a bit of everything. Would be a more well-rounded judging table.

    38

    Perez you are no Simon. If they bring another judge they will not be going after someone like Simon. Sure he made the show interesting, but he is 1 of a kind.



  39. 39

    #PerezKillsIdol - top tag for next year. Sorry Mario, but you taste is music proves that you have no hope. I would rather ask a dead guy for musical advice than ask you.



  40. 40

    Ew fuck no :/



  41. 41

    you know, he wouldn't be anything at all like Simon, but i think he would be really good at it



  42. 42

    I am a foreeeever Perez fan… but Bret Michaels was booorn for this kind of a role. Between his own reality show stints and his actual musical knowledge, he is a shoe in.

  43. Jaded says – reply to this


    43

    i actually loved him on Celebrity Apprentice so he might actually be good as an Idol judge, but since I don't watch Idol I can't really have an opinion on it.



  44. 44

    This guy was SO gorgeous back in the day. And "Something to Believe in" is one of my faves.



  45. 45

    Perez is a fucking narcissist, has pedo tastes in boys, wants everyone to be gay, but he does not really censor comments. He lets people say what they want, even when they rag on him. I like that about him. Can't believe I wrote that.



  46. 46

    OMG Perez you are not going to be the new AI judge so get over it! Why in the world would you even think they would want you? ANYWAYS Bret would be a great judge, he is caring but he can also tell people like it is.



  47. 47

    yeah, perez 4 idol! but leave bret in is corner..plz!

    Re: theNumberOfTheBeast – Amen Amen Amen



  52. 52

    Personally, I like Bret Michaels, but I think he would be a terrible choice to replace Simon. I'm not exactly sure why I feel that way - I guess I feel that he's not in the same league as Simon Cowell. How much could we take of him flirting with and hitting on all of the pretty women - it would be so predictable!!

  53. luvu2 says – reply to this


    53

    Really? I'm surprised… I thought they'd be looking for someone more sharp and nasty to contrast with the other judges…Bret just seems so nice and likeable.



  54. 54

    Bret Michaels
    took the stage at the
    Nokia Theatre in L.A.
    May 27th,
    to perform on American
    Idol with one of the
    contestants.

    Before the show,
    Bret told US Magazine,
    "The doctors,
    I didn't tell them I was
    going to do this.

    I never told them I was
    coming here.

    They're going to find out
    in a few minutes.

    I may not have told
    my family either.

    Here's the thing,
    they have not said everything's
    OK.
    I'm running about 75 per cent
    realistically, physically,
    but in my soul and my heart,
    I feel great.

    I needed to do this tonight,
    just to come here.

    To be honest,
    there's still obviously a lot
    of pain I'm experiencing…
    but I feel great.

    It's my first musical experience
    back in the spotlight and after this,
    I'm hoping to go out on the road,
    and I'm really looking forward to it.

    Later on,
    I may collapse,
    but right now,
    I feel great."



  55. 55

    I wish he would take it easy.



  56. 56

    i like bret, he would bring a breeze of fresh air to the show.



  57. 57

    NOOOOO NO NO NO NO NO!!!
    He has his own dating show!! PUKE!! He makes me sick, actually, and if he is anywhere near American Idol, even if its just performing, I most certainly WILL NOT WATCH!

    I would much prefer Perez to this douche. At least Perez is funny.
    ("Tittays" hehe)



  58. 58

    What is he now, the Betty White of the music industry???



  59. 59

    Re: My black circumcised baby! – Do you really believe Perez reads these comments? NO way he does. He gets bashed so badly that his girly fragile ego would not be able to take it. He would wind up making another video of himself crying like a school girl that no one loves him.

    He has these comments so people come back to see their comments giving Perez double & triple website hits. It all for money. He then can go to advertisers and tell them how many hits his website gets a day. We all are guilty of padding his pocket.
    He could not care less what is written here.



  60. 60

    Isn't he supposed to have open heart surgery in the fall? I don't see how producers would take such a huge risk on a guy with so many health problems right now. The show doesn't have a chance w/out Simon, so I think their best bet would be to have celebrity judges each week.



  61. 61

    i don't think he'd be LIKE simon at all. it'll just be him, but i definitely would watch it more if he was on there. he seems like a pretty cool guy.

    Re: SerenityMarie – and, i also like to add that i don't even think perez gets on here that much anymore. i believe he has several ghost writers just pretending to be him. don't believe me? look it up and see for yourself. took me a while to figure out.



  62. 62

    I wish him all the best

    Re: RashManly – .
    Bret received a standing ovation
    for performing Every Rose Has
    Its Thorn on American Idol.

    Someone forgot to tell Bret
    Idol is about unknowns trying
    to build their own fame,
    not for the already famous
    to take the spotlight to feed
    on.

    Keep abusing your health
    to feed your overblown ego.

    It will not ease the pain
    for your daughters and
    the mother of your children
    if you drop dead.

    Re: SerenityMarie – so people who use this site to bash this fat piece of shit have no jobs, yet people who use it to praise and compliment him have jobs and lives? how does that make sense? the people who bash him come on to say one thing and go.. it takes 2 seconds to leave a comment. the ones who kiss his ass live their whole days on his site begging him to update.. i think you need a life loser.



  68. 68

    I was at his concert tonight in St. Louis, and he said the same thing on stage here about Idol. I also want to say he looked awesome on stage and didn't seem like he was recovering at all! He was really energetic and happy to be doing what he does best.

    Sorry Pretzel!! But Bret has you “` beat “` on this one. In fact “` AI might get “`stepped up“` a bit “` with some rock`n`roll““ baby!! :)



  71. 71

    Well it sure would make me watch the show for the first time!!! In a word? H A W T



  72. 72

    i'll watch amerian idon again if they put bret michaels instead of perez!!



  73. 73

    I wonder if he won the show or hes becoming a judge because he almost dieed????……..



  74. 74

    Re: blahblah12Re: blahblah12
    Thre can onley be one simon cowell with his personality but hes startinh a new show called x factor with is pretty much americas got talent (there is no age limit to try out)



  75. 75

    The only similarities that Bret has to Simon is he is a total ass hole too!



  76. 76

    Idol and Poison both suck.



  77. 77

    He can be the next judge….but definitely not Simon!



  78. 78

    who the efff is he LOL



  79. 79

    why the hell would they want Brett Michaels?????????? Nothing really against the dude, but he's not going to make people want to tune in. They need someone ballsy like Simon.



  80. 80

    P.S. #Perez NEVER EVER for Idol.



  81. 81

    Half the world isn't familiar with Brett Michaels. He'd be too soft a judge. Perez doesn't know enough about music but I'd choose him over Brett. The show needs a Howard Stern type yet knows music so it can't be him. I like the idea of 3 judges with a guest judge and then maybe from the guest judges a new Simon will be crowned.



  82. 82

    The sympathy tour/death watch will continue every second of the day for the next 6 months, and Pig Face will be there every step of the way enabling yet one more famewhore. Milk it, honey, this is the best promotional material you've had in your career.



  83. 83

    I don't want to watch the bandana head. Just get some hair plugs already, and lose the head piece. When people try to look 20 in their advanced middle age it starts to look pathetic.



  84. 84

    I think they should chose Harry Connick Jr or Diddy.



  85. 85

    Will Brett even be alive when they start taping the auditions?



  86. 86

    I think this is a great idea- I love him. However, he won't have that Simon way
    about him. I loved hearing Simon's hilarious comments. There are only a few wise guys out there that can pull that off.



  87. 87

    Perez, when will you wake up in realize that you're a joke. If they were to make you a judge of American Idol, the show would lose what tiny bit of credibility it has left. The fact you find yourself so important is actually quite hilarious. I'm sure the producers of AI got a good laugh when they found out you were striving to become judge.

    every day his 'injuries' seem more like a pr stunt… going right on stage, now trying to be a judge on idol? if he really almost died he would be at home appriciating his family.. what a piece of shit.



  91. 91

    how about #perezwillneverbeonidol you fucking loser. get a life and stop begging.

  94. 94

    I think he'd be good . . .



  95. 95

    I have never watched American Idol because I never liked the concept. I might watch it if Bret was on it. Mario, you have no place "judging" anything because you are biased, agenda pushing hater.



  96. 96

    Re: Ritaa – Think most of America would rather have #BretForIdol ;)



  97. 97

    are you firs at anything anymore?..besides sucking a hery dick…lame



  98. 98

    He would be a great pick…he would breathe some life back into that show!



  99. 99

    I like Brett Michaels, I don't think it would be possible for him to be a jackass to the contestants as Simon had a knack for doing. However, at least he has musical knowledge unlike you, Perez, who basically just bashes everyone who doesn't have the same opinions as you.



  100. 100

    Bret Michaels is too nice to be the next Simon Cowell. On The Apprentice, he could never say anything unkind about the other contestants. That would make Idol incrdibly boring. Idol needs you Perez!!! You're meaner and that would make the show a lot more fun!
