Rocker Bret Michaels is reportedly one of the potential candidates to replace former 'American Idol' judge Simon Cowell, according to TMZ.

Michaels himself broke the news Friday evening during a concert in Biloxi, MS. "I can't say this is true yet, 'cause I don't know. Next year they asked me to possibly be the judge on 'American Idol," he said, before launching into the Poison classic 'Every Rose Has Its Thorn.'

A rep for FOX had no comment.
