This just in.... A statement from executive producer Nigel Lythgoe, refuting the report that Courtney Love is being courted by American Idol:

"I did not call Courtney Love, and am afraid someone may have misrepresented me. Courtney Love is a very talented artist, but the judges for American Idol are Paula, Randy and Simon. We have no plans to add to or replace any of them."

That settles that. (Told ya it was crazy talk.)
