Koman Coulibaly, the referee who denied a game-winning goal for the United States in the World Cup game they played against Slovenia, has now been officially asked to fill the judge's seat Simon Cowell recently left empty on American Idol.

"We were looking for someone who could call them as he sees them, even if he's wrong 98% of the time, and I think we've found him," claims the show's executive producer, Simon Fuller.

Even his name, Koman, is so close to Simon as to ring familiar with American Idol fans. "We truly found a dream come true in Koman," said Fuller. "We couldn't have found a better match had we tried and the fact that he was just let go by FIFA as a referee frees him up to start taping the show as soon as we get started in a few months. We are ecstatic."

When Fuller was asked if he had any comments on that fateful call that landed Koman on the sidelines of the World Cup, Fuller said that he wasn't really rooting for America anyway, so it made no difference to him whether the United States won or not. "Oh I like their Hollywood and all, don't get me wrong," said Fuller. "Hell, they're even gonna give me a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame here comin' up next year. But when it comes to soccer, I am still partial to the "Three Lions" and am cheerin' them on. Go Brits!"

Fuller added, "Ain't life grand? You never know where your next million dollar man is gonna come from, you know?"
