I read a blurb in the newspaper this morning that TV4, the network that produces the Swedish version of the Idol talent contest franchise, has invited Über-evil judge Simon Cowell to be a guest on their own panel for an upcoming program.
No word on whether the blunt Brit will actually turn up in Stockholm…I’m guessing the guy has a pretty busy schedule. But his appearance would certainly liven up at least one episode of Sweden’s sad excuse for an Idol show.
And not just because I often find his brutally honest assessment of performances to be entertaining in a sick and twisted sort of way, but because the Swedish contestants might *finally* get some constructive criticism that actually helps them become better performers. Wouldn’t THAT be novel?
