Formal finalists where asked by Billboard how to bring American Idol back.  Here’s what Danny said:

Danny Gokey (season 8, top 3): “Keep the original format. In my opinion go back to the roots of the original judges and the way they did it from the beginning. Who knows? That’s the best thing I got. I would pick Simon, Paula and Randy. Bring the trio back.”

Constantine Maroulis (season 4, sixth place): “I would like it to look like me in Keith’s (Keith Urban) chair, Daughtry in Harry’s (Harry Connick, Jr.) chair and Jordin Sparks in J Lo’s (Jennifer Lopez) chair.
