Courtney Love Gave Jimmy Kimmel Great Ratings

Courtney Love's invitation to become an 'American Idol' judge was a hoax.The former Hole singer proudly announced she had been contacted by the show's executive producer Nigel Lythgoe to join the judging panel on the hit TV show, but he denies making the call. Lythgoe said in a statement: "I did not call Courtney Love and am afraid someone may have misrepresented me."Courtney Love is a very talented artist, but the judges for 'American Idol' are Paula, Randy and Simon. We have no plans to add to or replace any of them."It was thought producers might be looking to replace Paula Abdul after she sparked concerns she is battling substance abuse. Fears were fuelled after she appeared in a series of interviews last month where she was seen swaying and slurring her words. Paula, who judges 'American Idol' along with Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson,recently revealed that while she has no plans to leave the show she is currently working on several other projects. Projects include a documentary about her life for TV network Bravo, producing a live-action film based on the Bratz dolls - and her love life. When asked what she looks for in a man, Paula replied: "The opposite from Simon."
