Idol's Danny Gokey: Obama Should Replace Simon

Danny Gokey

Change is good for American Idol, according to Danny Gokey. While many fans are dreading Simon Cowell's impending exit, the Season 8 third-place finisher tells TVGuide.com that playing musical judging chairs is necessary for the aging Fox juggernaut. "I think in order for Idol to stay alive, they need to reinvent the wheel," he says. "He is irreplaceable, and when you bring someone new on, you don't want them to copycat exactly what Simon did.

Find out who he'd nominate for the judges' table, how he hopes to give back through his organization, Sophia's Heart Foundation, and more.
