Dannii Minogue “American Idol” Judge
Aussie pop star Dannii Minogue is being courted for a judging gig on the eighth season of American Idol. The younger sister of singer Kylie Minogue is set to join fellow X Factor judge Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul on a revamped Idol judging panel in a bid to recreate FOX’s reality talent competition hit. American Idol saw a sharp decline in viewership during it’s seventh season.
“When ratings dropped Simon was asked what would help and the first thing he said was ‘Dannii Minogue,'” a tabloid source says.
