Chris is reportedly one of the front-runners for the job now that Simon has bowed out. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Chris has already met with Fox execs twice for the gig.
While execs refuse to comment on who they think should replace Simon, his successor will most likely be announced in September.
Who else is being considered? Believe it or not, Harry Connick Jr., is also in the running, as well as Bret Michaels. Who do you think should replace Simon from the three?
