Simon Cowell declined an invitation to judge ABC’s reboot of American Idol.
Naturally, ABC would like to re-create Idol’s heyday of 30 million viewers per night. That’s one reason why ABC is deep in talks with Ryan Seacrest to return as host.
Now all they have to do is locate Randy Jackson. You know Paula Abdul is sitting by her phone, checking it every couple of minutes, waiting for her invite.
Interesting how Kelly Clarkson cleared her schedule for The Voice and jilted Idol.
