"Idol" Judges to Britney: We Want You!

"American Idol" judges Simon, Randy and Paula believe they have what it takes to bring back Britney's career.

In an announcement to FOX News, Simon Cowell says that, among other things, getting her "away from her stupid friends" will help revive her career.

"MTV ratings are up and all we're hearing is Britney, Britney, Britney!" Simon said. "She can turn it around." Could this bring Britney's career back from its Las Vegas grave?

It is unclear whether they want Britney to be a guest star or a contestant.
