Is Bret Michaels Closer to Being An 'American Idol' Judge?


Even before Simon Cowell could really leave American Idol, we've seen quite a lot of names floating around as possible replacements. Right now, it seems we're all settling for one of those names: Bret Michaels.


In an interview with Parade magazine, the Poison frontman (and reality star) admits that he's meeting Idol producers in Los Angeles in a couple of weeks. "I don't know [if I'll be replacing Simon]," he said. "We have a meeting in L.A. in a couple weeks and we're going to sit down and talk. They did a poll and I think it was Madonna, P. Diddy, Howard Stern and myself, and I took 50% or 60% of the vote and that's tremendous."


"I'm not built exactly like Simon Cowell, but, at the same time, I respect what he did," he added. "But I would have to bring my own personality. I think if they have someone in there to try to imitate Simon, it would be a mistake; he's an original. Bring Bret Michaels in to be original to who and what I am. Bring someone who can bring a little grit, true grit back to the show."
