Simon Cowell Has the Power

Here's a little tidbit about the upcoming season of American Idol.

As you know, there will be a new judge -- song writer Kara DioGuardi -- joining the panel, which posed the question, "What happens when the judges' decision on an audition is split?" Well, you can always count on Paula Abdul to let the cat out of the bag -- and she did.

Paula told the Johnjay & Rich radio show Wednesday morning that in the case of a tie, Simon Cowell would have the deciding vote on American Idol.

Ooooooohhh, I bet that makes the rest of them mad! But really, we all know that Simon is almost always right, anyway. He says exactly what the rest of us are thinking, so it's actually a smart decision, just surprising that the producers of the show would be so up front about the fact that Paula and Randy Jackson are just filler. I am interested to see what role the newbie takes on, though...

What do you think of giving Simon the deciding vote?
