Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Adam Lambert… just some of the names American Idol producers are reportedly lining up in the event that Jennifer Lopez follows through with her threat to leave the show.

Someone spilling to E! Online said: "No one has signed any contracts yet and producers are currently putting out feelers and setting up meetings to see who they can get. We won't know if Randy [Jackson] and Steven [Tyler] are returning until they see who else is on board."

Well, considering they're interested in "signing younger judges to attract a new audience", they should probably hire someone who is totally going to get on their wicks. Miley Cyrus it is then. Or Katy Perry. In fact, any of the aforementioned.

Also reportedly being considered for the role are Black Eyed Peas Will.I.Am (never off your telly) and Fergie. Because they're both brimming with youth.
