We’ve known for weeks that Poison frontman Bret Michaels has shown interest in judging on “Idol.” In Parade magazine, he said he’s going to be meeting with “Idol” execs soon to talk about it. He really really wants it.
Sure, he has had his fair share of medical problems recently, including a brain hemorrhage he miraculously survived this spring. He still suffers short-term memory loss and fatigue but remains on the road touring.
But the man’s image has greatly improved given his spunky victory on NBC’s Donald Trump vehicle “Celebrity Apprentice” (as opposed to the boozy idiocy of VH1’s “Rock of Love”).
Though many of us here agree that a fourth judge is unnecessary, “Idol” may end up picking one anyway.
Good points about Bret: He is extremely likable, especially the Bret Michaels we saw on “Celebrity Apprentice.” He works hard. He’s smart. He is witty and quotable. He could be fun on the judge’s table.
Potential bad points about Bret: He is not the picture of health. He helms a really cheesy ’80s metal band. He wears that annoying bandanna. As a fellow musician, he may be a bit too soft on the contestants and we have enough softness from Randy and Ellen.
