'Idol' judge Simon Cowell's replacement: George Clooney, Elton John, Quincy Jones, Tommy Mottola?

The Dish Rag figured this weekend's Golden Globes swag suites would  the perfect place to ask (okay, corner) celebs who they want to replace  Simon Cowell as a judge on "American Idol."

Their EXCLUSIVE TO THE DISH RAG suggestions ranged from the sublime ( George Clooney, Ray Davies, Gladys Knight, Quincy Jones) to the ridiculous ( Elmer Fudd?)

At the Madison & Mulholland suite, the still-sexy siren Joan Collins, 76, was picking out her Purple Jade jewelry when she revealed, "I want George Clooney to replace him. Why not? That man should be everywhere. He's hunky, a darling and he needs to be seen as much as possible by as many women as possible. Other than him, me! I can be quite sarcastic, and I agree with everything Simon says anyway."
