Who in the world could possibly replace Sharon Osbourne as a judge on America's Got Talent?!

Host Nick Cannon has a certain celebrity someone in mind.

"Madonna!" Cannon told us while promoting tonight's TeenNick HALO Awards on Nickelodeon. "Why not?"

"See, that's a good one right?" he laughed. "Howard Stern next to Madonna? Come on!"

A Madonna-Stern face-off sounds like good television to us!

While we wait to see if the Material Girl has time in her busy schedule for a gig on reality TV, Cannon says he's "absolutely" going to miss Osbourne on the next season of the hit NBC show.

"It's gonna be tough to try to fill her shoes," he dished. "I'm interested to see who they're gonna [pick]. I hear rumblings of all types of people, but these competition shows are big moneymakers these days for celebrities so I'm pretty sure they'll write the check to get someone."

Osbourne's seat might not be the only one needing to be filled. Stern also recently told us the "answer is still fuzzy" regarding his decision to return to AGT.

"I would've loved to see everybody come back," Cannon said of Stern. "I felt that we had the best judging panel on television. I mean, everybody's so accomplished and so charismatic, I hope that they can find someone to fill the void but I don't think it'll be too much of an issue."

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
