It's been a rocky 12 months for the mega popular show American Idol. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the show could get a late start if producers fail to find a third judge.

News leaked last week that the show's potential third and final judge Dr. Luke's deal fell through. So far, Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban have signed on to return.

As producers scramble to fill the seat in time for next Tuesday's tapping, they are reportedly trying to steer clear of selecting another female judge. Last season's Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey combo, and eventual debacle, didn't fair well with the show's female audience.

Veteran judge Randy Jackson confirmed his departure this past spring, but he's rumored to be taking on a mentorship position this coming season.

If left up to you, who would take the third seat at the judge's table?
