Move Over, Simon Cowell

American Idol ain't got nothing on the King of Swaziland, whose audition for his lucky 13th wife brought "fifty thousand bare-breasted virgins" dancing through the royal stadium yesterday. The 37-year-old monarch is criticized for promoting teenage sex and polygamy in a country where 40 percent of the population is HIV+, but that doesn't stop girls from across the poor nation who dream of gaining their own palace and a BMW. (Wow, think of the sponsorship tie-in!)
