Sources tell ALL ACCESS that record producer JOEL DIAMOND is the latest wildcard pick under consideration to replace SIMON COWELL on AMERICAN IDOL. FREEMANTLE, the AI-producing partner, contacted DIAMOND, whose 36 gold and platinum records includes work by 5 BROWNS, LAURA BRANIGAN, RAY J and ENGELBERT HUMPERDINCK.
He also produced the first-ever solo album from DAVID HASSELHOFF, 1985's KNIGHT RIDER.
