Regis Philbin said there should be a celebrity edition of American Idol, and he would try out for it.

“And if I don’t win it, there’s something wrong,” he said during an appearance Friday at the opening of an interactive, ship-shaped museum dedicated to the Titanic disaster.

Philbin, who has released two successful albums in the past two years, was responding to a challenge from Randy Jackson, an Idol judge who sat in for Philbin on “Regis and Kelly” Friday.

Philbin and his wife, Joy, were in Branson to christen the “Titanic: The Legend Continues” museum. Philbin also performed a concert Friday night at the Grand Palace.
