Timberlake, Elton, J-Lo, Jessica Simpson Possible? "American Idol" is struggling.  The ratings giant has lost several judges over the past year including "Idol" staple Simon Cowell.  Comedian Ellen Degeneres who was on the show for one brief season is finished with the show as well.  Reports of new judges are spreading plenty of names including Elton John, Justin Timberlake, Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Lopez and others.  So, with so many new judges, will "American Idol" survive?  Has the show already lost its swagger?  Who would make a great "Idol" judge?  So many questions and so few answers...
