Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell

I don't mean to be rude, but...you're Simon Cowell, the king of that catchphrase! You may remember Simon as the brutally honest "American Idol" judge from 2002 to 2010. He was blunt and did not sugar coat anything, but his opinions were also well trusted and smart. Like Simon, you are confident in your abilities. You know what you want and are not afraid to tell it like it is. You are witty, entertaining, and highly respected by your peers!

Randy Jackson

Randy Jackson

Yo, dawg, you are Randy Jackson! Randy was the music producer judge that stayed with the show from its first season in 2002 through season 12 in 2014. You love to generate hype! Randy was always hopeful that this was going to be the best season ever, and you are just as positive and upbeat. You would also be a fair and honest judge who does not sugarcoat things but also tries not to hurt people's feelings. You know what you are talking about and work hard for your success!

Paula Abdul

Paula Abdul

You are Paula Abdul, one of the original three "American Idol" judges! Paula was known for her quirky behavior and sugarcoated comments. Like Paula, you would rather avoid the truth than hurt someone's feelings. That being said, you don't lie. Her judging strategy was to comment on something besides singing, like the performer's great outfit, if the singing wasn't good. You love to make people laugh by being your quirky self and you are not afraid to be different! You are sweet and very lovable.

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez

You are Jennifer Lopez, the beloved judge from seasons 10, 11, 13, 14, and the upcoming season 15. J.Lo puts her heart into her job as an "American Idol" judge, and it is clear that she values the importance of mentoring these aspiring stars. She is known to be corny at times, saying that the contestants gave her "goosies" (goosebumps) after good performances. Like J.Lo, you are the nice, yet tough, one of your friend group. You want to see your friends succeed and you are almost like a mother to them.

Steven Tyler

Steven Tyler

You are Steven Tyler, the crazy judge from seasons 10 and 11 and the lead vocalist of American rock band Aerosmith. By "crazy," we mean extravagant. You never knew what he would do because he never held back, and often found himself cursing on a supposedly family-friendly TV show. You like to have fun and the rockstar life seems like the kind of life for you. You are a rebel who never wants to be tamed!

Harry Connick Jr.

Harry Connick Jr.

You are Harry Connick Jr., "American Idol" mentor, performer, and judge in recent seasons. Harry Connick Jr. does it all in the entertainment industry. He has sold over 28 million albums, won 3 Grammy Awards for his jazz records, and won 2 Emmy Awards for his acting. He is also one of the most knowledgable and helpful "American Idol" judges of all time. Like Harry, you are an old soul with a great sense of humor. You are ridiculously talented and love to help others as well!
