American Idol’s Simon Cowell and Dancing with the Stars’ Bruno Tonioli have toyed with the idea of switching shows.
Call it clash of the TV judges as American Idol’s Simon Cowell and Dancing with the Stars’ Bruno Tonioli tells Extra they would consider it.
The two, friends for over 20 years, revealed they want to switch shows.
Cowell explains, “We’d swap judges. He comes on American Idol. I’d go on Dancing with the Stars without any explanation.”
But, according to Tonioli, “You [Cowell] know nothing about dancing!” Cowell responds, “Well, he doesn’t know anything about singing.” Tonioli laughs, “I could make it up. You do.”
When asked what the difference is between these old friends, Tonioli responds, “The difference is that I drive a rental and you [Cowell] drive a yacht!” Cowell exclaims, “The rental’s a Ferrari!”
