Long-standing American Idol judge LA Reid has already announced his departure, potentially leaving two spots open on the judging panel.
Season two host Mario Lopez, who insists he would "love to come back" for next year's series, has his own ideas about who should replace LA.
Speaking to Life & Style, he said: "I've been campaigning for my girl Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas. I think she would be awesome."
He added: "We've been friends for a long time and I think she's talented and I think she'd be an awesome judge/mentor. She's cool and hip and I think the kids would really respond to her and like her."
