Auditions for the next season of American Idol[1] have been under way for about two months, but the show’s still short a judge or two — and time is running out.

Earlier this summer we learned that J.Lo and Steven Tyler[2] are out, Mariah Carey[3] is in, country cutie Brad Paisley[4] is a maybe and Randy Jackson will sorta, kinda be involved with the show in some fashion. Maybe Jackson will be a judge, maybe he won’t, but the king Dawg has told various media outlets on several occasions that he’ll be back.

This week, a few more names were tossed around the Idol rumor mill. Here’s list of celebs who might be the next judge on the show that’s slated to air in January.

One person who won’t be an Idol judge this coming season is Pink. The edgy rocker has reportedly turned down judges chairs at IdolX-Factor and The Voice.
