|Cowell (AP)Cowell's Got Beyonce On His Mind
Posted: December 17, 2008
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Simon Cowell says his wish list of celebrities for the upcoming season of "American Idol" includes Paul McCartney, Beyonce and Britney Spears.
McCartney has so far refused to appear on "American Idol," but Spears and Beyonce took part in Cowell's British talent show, "X Factor."
Cowell also said Wednesday that he's reserving judgment on how the addition of a fourth "American Idol" judge, singer-songwriter Kara DioGuardi, will pan out. Cowell has been happy with the chemistry over the years among him, Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul.
But he said DioGuardi is qualified and, what is more important, is willing to express her opinion.
The Fox show's eighth-season premiere is Jan. 13.
