Elton John Will Not Be Replacing American Idol

elt Elton John Will Not Be Replacing American Idol

With resident bah humbug judge Simon Cowell leaving American Idol, all the world is abuzz trying to guess his replacement. While we can’t tell you who it will be, we can tell you who it won’t: [lastfm]Elton John[/lastfm] for starters.

According to Entertainment Weekly, John reportedly walked away from a $33 million offer to fill in at the judges seat. We guess he weighed his options, looked at past judges, and decided his dignity was worth a lot more.

The 63 year-old singer made headlines recently when a concert of his was canceled in Egypt, as a result of comments John made in reference to Jesus Christ‘s sexual orientation and the strict, anti-homosexual laws which govern the state:

Try being a gay woman in the Middle East — you’re as good as dead.

This month John joined [lastfm]Sting[/lastfm], [lastfm]Bruce Springsteen[/lastfm], and [lastfm]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] at Carnegie Hall in a fundraiser to help save the rain forest.
