TV DIVAGAL @ THE TONYS: Paula Abdul Says Bret Michaels Would Be Great For Idol!By Delaina Dixon | June 14, 2010 | Entertainment
TV DivaGal was backstage in the 64th Annual Tony Awards Official Talent Gift Lounge at Radio City Music Hall last night, where Paula Abdul revealed that she thinks Bret Michaels would be great for Simon Cowell‘s vacated judge’s seat on American Idol. We couldn’t agree more!
Why would the man who’s cheated death not once or twice, but three times in the last three months and holds the current Celebrity Apprentice crown rock the job? Because he’d be totally awesome at it!
“You have to have a great vocabulary of music and be able to understand the greats that inspired you along the way in your career,” Paula says. “I think that it takes someone who really understands what its like for the young people to try to make magic happen in a minute and 30 seconds. So if he were to take that position, I think he would fit the mold perfectly.”
But don’t get it twisted. No one will ever really take over Simon’s role.
“Honestly, the word replacement to me does not apply, because as we all know they broke the mold after Simon,” Paula declares. “I think that we should use another word.”
Oh, we’re sure we can all think of a few, Paula!
