Former "American Idol" judge Simon Cromwell who was on the Fox television version of the music talent show does not plan to return as a judge in the newer version that is coming to the fall schedule on the American Broadcasting Company (ABC), Cromwell was the judge many of the contestants of the talent show loved to hate due to his harsh criticism of the contestants on the Fox version. The new judges on the musical talent show have not been selected as of today. There is no word if Ryan Seacrest who is currently working with Kelly Ripa on the "Live" show will return to resume his role on the new "American Idol" at this time. If Seacrest returns to resume his role on "American Idol", expect fireworks between him and Ripa. If he does return to host "American Idol."
