Simon Cowell Names Possible Judges for 'X Factor'Simon Cowell continues to be cagey regarding final selection for the 'X Factor' judges panel. He did, however, reveal the names of possible judges and those who definitely aren't being considered on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated).

Cowell said that George Michael, Nicole Scherzinger, Mariah Carey and Paula Abdul are possibilities, but that Christina Aguilera and Katy Perry are not. He also said that Elton John is absolutely not in the running "He's so grumpy nowadays. He'd just be moaning the whole time," said Cowell.

But Billy Bush takes Cowell's dig at John as a sign that the singer is "definitely in." "The catfight between these two is going to be epic," said Bush.

none of them...including simon himself would be doing any of this if not for money.....if the women would start one of these "new talent finding" shows..it would be different and a bigger hit than idol...if thats possible

That means you're wishing yourself to do things poorly. It's all within...I'd become a whisker more positive if I were you! What you wish for you get... Why would you ever wish another to do poorly? What's wrong with your perspective that you feel that's appropriate?

we want to hear Simon's commentary on this year's IDOL contestants!! Just once?? The judges this year are more like a cheer squad, all rah rah rah shish boom bah. I think Steve Tyler would say a contestant was wonderful for breaking wind, so long as she stayed on key.
