While I recall something about them cutting down on the number of Celeb coaches this season, I'm still curious who we all think would be kind of cool in the role.
Here's one rule (at least for the sake of our little discussion):
A.) The person's music does NOT have to be the "theme" for that week, although their style probably should be.
and another logical one:
B.) We don't have to be bound by who would or wouldn't realistically show up (or be allowed by Uncle Nigel and Grampa Clive). In fact, its probably MORE fun to jaw about people who we doubt would ever do it. Even a few who have expressed disgust about the show might be a kick.
Still, realistic picks probably should get a few extra points.
Okay, I'll go first.
1.) The Eagles.
In this case their music CAN be used for a theme week. There's enough of it. While this would go down hard for a few contestants, I think at least SOMETHING from their song catalog could be adapted for everyone.
Since they are pushing an actual new album (well, relatively new), they might actually do it.
2.) Carrie Underwood.
Great press for the show when this inevitably happens some season. Kelly Clarkson won't do it (although she DID for Canadian Idol apparently), so why not Carrie? It will play as the "this is what you can become" story.
Past Idols come back to sing pretty often, so having one take the "coach" role is no huge leap.
3.) Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend.
Hey, why not?
Remember, this is less about what music Idol could realistically get the legal rights to use on the show and more about what would be a fun appearance.
So... anyone else wanna play? Who are your pie-in-the-sky Idol coaches? Your realistic ones? Let's hear it.
And don't say "Andy Williams" or I may have to hit you!
