Chris Isaak To Replace Simon Cowell?!

| Filed under: American IdolSimon Cowell

wenn5497405.jpg

Although auditions for the 10th season of American Idol began in Nashville last week, there is no word on who will be replacing Simon Cowell. But we have heard a new name emerging as a front runner for the job - Chris Isaak!

Supposedly, the singer has met with show runners several times and they really like him. But rumor has it that Harry Connick Jr is in the mix as well.

No one would be better than Perez for the job, but Chris Isaak is a pretty lameballs choice!

Don't U agree?!

  1. 1

    Perez would just be the last nail in that coffin.



  2. 2

    keep telling yourself that mario - when it never happens i hope you get so upset you find the highest bridge in LA and jump……….



  3. 3

    Perez you are such an ass. Your music "taste" is horrible with all the plastic overly auto-tuned no-talents you plug on this website. Chris Isaak is a REAL musician with REAL talent….something you obviously know nothing about.



  4. 4

    Perez would be the last nail in that coffin.



  5. 5

    How sad that you're NOT being considered, Perez Gibson. Maybe this is CLUE that people really don't like you.



  6. 6

    all i can do i laugh at this post..mainly because you still think you have a chance.



  7. 7

    definitely think Harry Connick JR should do it! hes amazing!! love him



  8. 8

    WRONG! Chris Isaak isn an accomplished singer/songwriter/musician that is very well respected in the music industry. Just cuz he's not Lady GaGa (whom I love btw) doesn't mean he's not current or valid.



  9. 9

    i think anyone is better than perez - even teddy



  10. 10

    REALLY, heard it somewhere else first you cut and paste QUEEN. You sloppy 2nd-smith loser! AGAIN!



  11. 11

    Chris Isaak would NOT be as lame as say….Perez Hilton, a no-talent, hypocritical moron who makes a living writing smack about celebrities.



  12. 12

    I am sure Chris Isaak and Harry Connick Jr know 100 times more about music than Perez.



  13. 13

    What has he done in the last 20 years? One hit wonder! I want Harry Connick Jr. he's hot and funny!



  14. 14

    He has decades of music industry experience. You just "write" about people who do things.



  15. 15

    He'd be a better choice than Perez, being that the guy is a musician and has been in the industry for a million years, unlike Perez.



  16. 16

    Chris Isaak is beautiful, charming, funny, likable, and such an incredible musician. It doesn't get much better than him.



  17. 17

    You would be the worst possible contender. Especially considering the shit you have signed to whatever label you claim to have. All the music you promote is a joke. The only good shit you promote you end up dissing.



  18. 18

    Re: jones19 – well going by your standards of doing something, Harry Connick Jr never had a single hit so by your rules Chris Isaak is one up on him.



  19. 19

    You have absolutely no idea what's going on, mainly because you're so far removed from the loop. The only way you'd be considered is if all the contestants were boys under the age of 16 looking to get ahead by blowing a pedophile.



  20. 20

    Fuck no you fat fugly fucking fucktard… Stop whining about getting on the fucking show. The show sucks already without your lame ass begging pathetic ass on it. You would only make it that much more worse and harder to tolerate. Jeeesh you are a pathetic piece of shit. Maybe if you didn't berate or talk down to people, it might be a chance but the fact that you hate on so many people and you push the "Gay" thing down everyones throat, you will always be a piece of shit hack with a website….

    Deal with it you fucking horse face loser….NO ONE WANTS YOU!!!!!

  21. Heh says – reply to this


    21

    Lameballs is not a word and no its a really good choice, he actually knows stuff about music you know being an actual musician and all



  22. 22

    I lovemy Chris and I don't want him on American Idol for several reasons, but you can suck it Perez, you're a lame ass fuck tard.



  23. 23

    who the hell is chris issak?



  24. 24

    Mario you are LAST on their list actually you are NOT on anyone's list



  25. 25

    I am WAY out of the loop. I have no idea who the hell this person even is. IMO I know who HCJ is, but this Chris Isaak? The only thing I know about him is he is extremely unattractive!!



  26. 26

    I'd prefer Harry Connick over Chris Isaak, but anyone is better than you. Avril Lavigne would be a better choice than you.



  27. 27

    Chris Isaak is a smart experienced musician with years of working within the music media. Sounds like a good choice to me.



  28. 28

    Re: VeganVal – I agree. Chris Isaak is incredibly entertaining. If you ever get the chance to see him live, do it! Even people who have never heard of him leave his show a fan. He is quite possibly the most charming man on Earth. They should throw off Ellen and, while we are at it, Kara, too, and replace them with Chris, Harry Connick Jr. and Brett Michaels. Those three together would be hilarious. I would never miss a show.



  29. 29

    Re: shutittwat – Harry is way more relevant today than Chris, if this was the mid 90's Chris would be a shoe in.



  30. 30

    Actually Perez would be lameballs and anyone else would be better! Based on the artists you promote here, I don't think you really comprehend what American Idol is about.



  31. 31

    Harry Connick Jr. would be FANTASTIC…
    Howard Stern would be HILARIOUS…
    Madonna would be INTERESTING…



  32. 32

    Perez are you kidding??? hell to the no!!! heterosexual and homosexual people doesn't like you. Lame a$$.



  33. 33

    Anyone would be better than Perez!!!



  34. 34

    You would be an awful choice for the job and American Idol would probably lose a LOT of viewers.



  35. 35

    I think he would make a great choice. Chris has a certain intelligence & sense of humor that Perez lacks, plus he's an accomplished and respected musician. And to people who says Chris is a one hit wonder or hasn't done anything in the last 20 years, he has several gold and platinum albums, and he's released several albums within the past 10 years that have all reached the top 20 here in the US, plus he's done some acting.



  36. 36

    WHO THE FUCK IS HE?? GREAT, ANOTHER Z-LISTER!! THIS SHOW IS DONE ANYWAY. CANCEL THIS SHIT. EPIC FAIL!!!!!!!!!



  37. 37

    I never leave comments, BUT I just could not let this one slide. WHY on Earth do you think you are quailified to judge a singing competition??? Are you a singer? Songwriter??NOOO…the only thing you do is make fun of celebrities and post hateful things about people you don't like. Chris Issak is an amazing singer, songwriter, musician, actor and all around amazing guy. He is funny and easy on the eyes. I can't think of a better choice. I did not watch Idol this year, but if he were chosen, I would totally tune back in. Just because you "discovered" Lady Gaga does not make you an authority on all things music. So, go back to drawing drool on pictures and writing hateful blogs about Xtina and leave the music to someone who does more than just listen to it.



  38. 38

    I so don't not agree that Chris Isaak is a lameballs choice! I would actually watch American Idol if Chris was on it and you know what his fans would watch which more than likely help AI's ratings a bit better than Ellen did. I would like to either see Chris, Harry Connick Jr, or Bret Michales !!



  39. 39

    I love Harry Connick Jr. Hope they pick him!



  40. 40

    Actually, he's a very funny, quick-witted guy. He's hilarious in concert. I love his music, but it's the things he says in between songs that make his shows so enjoyable.



  41. 41

    While he's chiefly known for Wicked Game, he's a wonderful entertainer with a great sense of humour and has done some acting and hosting. An excellent choice. Harry C. Jr. would be good also.



  42. 42

    He's talented and sexy, You're not



  43. 43

    Damn, all you peeps leaving hate comments for perez, whats your problem, yall come here to read all the articles on his awesome website but then say mean shit to him, if you dont like him, dont come here… I love perez, hes awesome, and you all should appreciate his site more, why do you come, are you just here to bash… chill, damn people…



  44. 44

    Who the hell is HE?

    Perez, you're not getting the job so stop. Plus, you aren't qualified. Sorry bbs.



  45. 45

    I might actually watch the show if Chris Isaak would be on it. He is hilarious(Chris Izaak show anyone???). And he actually knows a thing or two about music.



  46. 46

    Are you kidding?? Chris Issak is an awesome choice!



  47. 47

    Are you kidding?? Chris Issak is an awesome choice!



  48. 48

    Please give it a rest, Mario. Chris has been in the industry for years.



  49. 49

    Once again your a day late … as I read the article elsewhere. Although Bret Michaels said he was in, there is no consideration be put forth.

    BTW - I did not read Perez being in the mix … ever !



  50. 50

    God "Perez" is an idiot. Chris Isaak is awesome



  51. 51

    Chris Issak is AWESOME, funny and completely charming! and he's from my home town. He'd do a great job.

  52. Tar says – reply to this


    52

    Chris is also hilarious! He has an amazing personality and I think he could definitely pull it off!



  53. 53

    Perez is the better choice over Chris?? Hmmm, let's compare Perez to Chris…
    Have you ever written a song? NO!
    Have you ever produced a song? NO!
    How many albums have you written and recorded? ZERO
    Can you play an instrument? NO
    Can you sing? NO
    Do you have credibility? HELL NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Perez, you hosting AI is about to happen when hell freezes over!! What a f**king joke…Chris would be a great judge! and while they are at it, get rid of Ellen's ass too….she has no business up there judging a music contest anyway…Go Chris!



  54. 54

    gawd, what a lame, boring, no fun choice



  55. 55

    Perez, please learn how to use the word "but". Its usage indicates a phrase or sentence that is somewhat contradictory or unlike what precedes it. Saying "No one would…..BUT Chris Isaak…." is INCORRECT usage. Perhaps you should avoid the English language altogether "PERO" tu eres estupido!



  56. 56

    Fuck you — you are so ignorant. Chris puts on a wonderful show and is charming, funny and smart. He's also a damn fine guitarist. He would be terrific.



  57. 57

    Chris Isaak is a great musician and he's SMART, really smart. He knows tons about the music industry and is charming and witty. Have you ever seen the "Chris Isaak Show", Perez? He knows his shit.

    Why should you be a judge?



  58. 58

    Chris Isaak is talented, knowledgeable (has hosted his own music series and is a first-rate musician) and is also very snarky. He'd be a great choice.

  59. barb says – reply to this


    59

    Perez you would be the worst pick ever. Harry Connick all the way!!!!!



  60. 60

    Hell no. Let's see here…he's an actual musician/singer, he's had at least one huge hit and several minor ones…oh and he's not a screaming, annoying, lying prick. Much better choice than Perez!



  61. 61

    Hehe..sounds like I "heard" about Chris Isaak being in the running for A.I. before you did, Perez! Late news as usual



  62. 62

    I LOVE CHRIS ISAAK! It's funny I was reading this, because I was listening to his music. But seriously, I think that an unknown music executive who has high standards and is very opinionated should replace Simon.



  63. 63

    I still dont see how you PEE PEE THINK YOU WOULD MAKE A JUDGE. NOT JUST A JUDGE, BUT ONE WHO KNOWS THE MUSIC BIZZ INSIDE AND OUT??? EXPLAIN PLEASE!!! As for Isaak replacing Cowell is RIDUNKULOUS!! Im not sure if i will even watch without Simon on there, he is a one of a kind. Nuff said…….. P.S. I do believe that Bret Michaels would be a way better choice, and dont go saying anything bout his health probs, because Im pretty sure all of that is under control!!! AGAIN..NUFF SAID!!



  64. 64

    I love Cris Isaak. He's funny and talented. Maybe it would be great because he so diffrent from Simon.

  65. MUNON says – reply to this


    65

    Chris and Harry, both great choices!!!!



  66. 66

    They should ask Phil Collins!!!!!!!



  67. 67

    You kind of ruined any chance you had when you linked to underaged snatch.



  68. 68

    The reason Isaak's name is even being condiered is because he is super-talented, witty, funny and absolutely fantatic singer. He knows about vocals. If the show was called American Drag Queen or something similar, Perez would be an ideal choice. Mincing about crying `I want it! Pick me!'is pathetic even for you Perez.

    Re: Mad Dog – WHAT A PRETTY DOGGIE LOOKS LIKE MY WOLF ONLY MINE IS BLACK AND WHITE (BRED WITH LINE OF WOLF MIX)



  70. 70

    Yum…Wicked Games.



  71. 71

    just saw him live last night, he'd be a great choice. I guess they're not looking to replace simon's mean-ness, just him.



  72. 72

    Love that Chris Isaak or Harry Connick Jr. are top of the list. Both of them are singers, writers of their own music and very accomplished in the music industry. I hope that it does come down to either of them. As for Perez, well it wouldn't be so interesting. Sorry BB just telling the truth. Don't quit your daytime job.



  73. 73

    i LOVE chris isaak! this would make my life!!!!!!



  74. 74

    Right Perez. Chris and Harry only had hits and have been in the music industry longer than you even existed. And what have you produced or recorded that was a massive hit? Whatever happened to Travis Gardner?? Your taste and judgement is crap..



  75. 75

    youre so good at being desperate, desperez



  76. 76

    Chris Isaak is a fantastic idea. I may still watch the show if they choose him.

    as for you MARIO…..they have meds for delusion of grandeur y'know.



  77. 77

    Out of the three- Chris is my first choice, then Harry, then… kill the show.

  78. WTF35 says – reply to this


    78

    Sorry Perez, but you are obviously delusional to be putting yourself in the ranks of Chris Isaak and Harry C. Jr.



  79. 79

    FUCK YOU MARIO, CHRIS ISAAK HAS MORE CLASS AND TALENT THAN YOU WILL EVER HAVE. ARE YOU A MUSICIAN? DO YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT MUSIC OTHER THAN TEEN AGE BUBBLE GUM POP SHIT? NOOOOO AND YOU HAVE HORRIBLE TASTE AS WELL. YOUR SENSE OF HUMOR IS SEVERELY LACKING AND CHRIS IS VERY FUNNY AND LIKABLE (UNLIKE YOURSELF). HIS TV SHOW WAS GREAT AND I'M SURE ANY CONTRIBUTION HE WOULD MAKE TO IDOL WOULD ACTUALLY FRESHEN IT UP AND MAKE IT FUNNIER. THE SHOW IS REALLY A JOKE ANYWAY, SO THIS WOULD BE PERFECT. BUT IF THEY REALLY WANT TO MAKE THE SHOW A LAUGHING STOCK, THEY WILL PUT YOUR UGLY MUG AND ANNOYINGLY SCREECHING VOICE ON THERE. EWWWW, IF THEY WANT TO KILL THE RATINGS AND SHOW, THEY WILL HIRE THE BIGGEST IDIOT AND WOMEN HATER ON THE PLANET, MARIO!!!!



  80. 80

    Re: brainchild – HA HA, I LOVE IT…THIS IS WHAT I'VE BEEN SAYING ALL ALONG. PEREZ SPEWS HATE AND VENOM (AGAINST WOMEN AND IN GENERAL) OF THE SAME CALIBER AS MEL GIBSON! SO YES, FROM NOW ON ITS PEREZ GIBSON FOR ME TOO! LOVES IT!!!



  81. 81

    Re: jones19 – ARE YOU WHAT….12? BECAUSE HE HAS HAD AN EMMY NOMINATED TV SERIES AS WELL AS MANY RECORDS. YOU'RE JUST TOO BUSY LISTENING TO MILEY CYRUS!



  82. 82

    Re: angelgirl – HONEY, YOU'RE THE ONE THAT NEEDS TO CHILL. IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE COMMENTS, THEN DON'T READ THEM. WE HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO EXPRESS OUR OPINIONS JUST LIKE YOU DO. SOME PEOPLE WANT MARIO TO KNOW WHAT A DISGUSTING HUMAN BEING HE IS AND IF HE EVER FORGETS, WE ARE HEAR TO REMIND HIM! SIMPLE AS THAT!



  83. 83

    Nah, Perez, you would suck. Your voice is extremely annoying and you would side with any cute or gay boy on stage, you would not be fair. And i'm not sure why you want the job as there is an age restriction, they will all be too old for a pedophile like you
