Singer Justin Timberlake is tipped to replace Simon Cowell as an American Idol judge.

According to reports, American Idol producer Simon Fuller and Fox Network executives are also considering dumping the entire judges panel - which would mean booting songwriter Kara DioGuardi and renegotiating multi-year contracts with Randy Jackson and Ellen DeGeneres, reports contactmusic.com.
