Perez Hilton and His Telestrator to Come to 'American Idol?'

Of all the potential replacements for Simon Cowell floated around the internet, this is the worst: Perez Hilton. Even the thought of Perez on my television two nights a week makes my skin crawl. Apparently the gossip blogger, who recently started his own record label, is interested in taking Simon's place on American Idol, though he'd also be happy to join Simon at the X Factors' judges table.

Perez shared his Idol dreams with MTV News this week saying, "I think that Simon Cowell leaving American Idol is amazing, because those are two potential jobs that I may have in the future." Hilton continued, "I'd be a great judge, but I'd also happily be a judge along with Simon Cowell on his U.S. version of 'X Factor.' Basically, I'm shamelessly looking for work. I'm available. And I'm cheap!"


Well, I think we can all agree with the shameless and the cheap part Perez, but I'm not too sure about the rest. The real question is, were FOX and Simon Fuller to lose their minds and invite Perez on the judges panel, would Perez's famous telestrator drawings come with? Surely there have been some auditioners this season we wish we could have drawn a big x over their faces or something cruder....perhaps Perez wouldn't be such a terrible addition after all.
