martha stewart jamie foxx 'American Idol': Martha Stewart, Jamie Foxx replacing Simon Cowell?How do you feel about Martha Stewart or Jamie Foxx replacing judge Simon Cowell on “American Idol?”

According to Life & Style magazine, Jamie Foxx is one of the frontrunners for Simon Cowell’s job at the end of this season of “Idol.” Remember, Foxx was a mentor to the Idols last year for Rat Pack night and we recall thinking he did an okay job. We aren’t sure he’s frank enough to take over for Cowell, though.

For that, we like Martha Stewart. She tells Ok! Magazine, “I’d be the best ‘American Idol’ judge because I’m fair.” We couldn’t agree more. We think Martha’s soft-spoken-yet-tough-as-nails attitude might be just what the Idols need, plus then it would finally break out of the male-female-male format that every show that followed “Idol” has copied.

What do you think? Could Randy Jackson, Kara DioGuardi and Martha Stewart handle the “Idol” judges’ panel? What if Ellen is or is not coming back? Does that make a difference?
