Who should the new 'American Idol' judge picks be? With word that 'AI' judges Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez are calling it quits with the show, it's time to start seriously thinking about their replacements. Should producers go with past 'Idol' winners and/or current hot music artists? They could certainly provide great tips for the 'American Idol' contestants, but can they bring the crazy that Steven Tyler brought? Will viewers like them? That's what this list is about: These are the celebrities who may (or may not) be great choices to fill the judge's chairs left empty. Vote for your favorites and vote down any people that you think would be terrible 'AI' judges. Also? Add anyone you think would be worthy of the honor!

'American Idol' is a singing competition, but that doesn't necessarily mean the judges have to be singers (or singers with talent, for that matter). So why not go with 'AI' producer Nigel Lythgoe's rumored pick, Charlie Sheen? He'd certainly bring the crazy. Or how about some reality TV stars like Snooki or even Kim Kardashian? Yeah, okay fine. They're on the list, but you can vote them down. Jennifer Love-Hewitt's also on the list, because she seems to want to do everything.

On the more serious side, musicians who've mentored on 'American Idol' before might be good choices. Think will.i.am, Stevie Nicks, Gwen Stefani, Alanis Morissette or even Steven Van Zandt. They all know the ins and outs of the industry, after all. And on that note, past 'Idol' winners or top finalists would probably be excellent judges, too, though many (like Carrie Underwood, Chris Daughtry, Jordin Sparks and Jennifer Hudson) are quite busy with other projects. Still, they're worthy of a spot on this list.

Who do you think should be the next 'American Idol' judge? Time to vote!
