Chris Isaak Considered as Next American Idol Judge

by at . Comments

We seem to be down to three.

With American Idol auditions about to start up again around the nation, the show is anxious to name a replacement for Simon Cowell. With Bret Michaels already campaigning for the gig, and Harry Connick Jr. remaining a candidate, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed a third name for the job:

Chris Isaak.

According to that publication, the singer has been brought in twice for an interview with Idol producers.

Isaak has guest-starred on a couple TV shows and is probably best known for his 1991 hit, "Wicked Game."

But it seems hard to believe many in Idol's core audience have heard of him. Michaels would be the best choice if the show is going after pop culture relevance, while Connick - an actor, singer and composer - would deliver the most versatility.

Who do you think should take Simon's spot?
