AI Has Their Own Back Up Plan, J.LO!

| Filed under: American IdolJennifer Lopez


Ready for this one, Miz Jenny From the Block!

If for some divalicous reason J.LO decides not to accept what we're sure is a generous offer from American Idol to judge, the execs are going to kick her sassy ass to the curb and got a little bit country.

Sources say that their next choice for the judge's seat is Shania Twain. She was a real hit with audiences during her stint as guest judge last season during auditions and she's even mentored a time or two.

We don't know, Jen. Sounds like they are cuing up Man, I Feel Like A Woman in the Idol control room. You better make a decision!

Tick, tock! Tick, tock!

    I love Shania Twain. I will surely watch American Idol .

  2. 2

    Shania Twain based solely on her boobs alone

  3. 3

    your grammar is awful…

  4. 4

    Great choice! Much better than J. Lo!
    and how about Harry Connick Jr as another option? Loved when he was a guest/mentor :D

  5. 5

    Shania Twain would be perfect! She's gorgeous inside and out!

  6. 6

    Shania should have been their first choice to begin with!

    She was best selling female recording artist, she writes and co-produces her own music. She is knowledgeable of the music industry and well spoken as a guest judge last season, not to mention kind to the contestants and beautiful to look at!

    And Shania can actually sing.

  9. 9

  10. 10

  11. 11

    This Would Amazing!! Shania Rocks!!!

  12. 12

    Shania Twain would be way better than miss diva.

    the show is done…
    all that shit above is meaningless … Shania, J.LO, - like it will make any difference

  14. 14

    Shania, Bret Michaels and Jessica Simpson would not be bad.

  15. 15

    wait. didn't you just report breaking news that j.lo was a no-no because of her diva-tude???? jumping the gun again douchey?

  16. 16

    Shania would get me to actually sit down and watch from time to time

  17. 17

    Called it!

    Next, Chris Isaac countdown . . .
    Harry Connick SUCKED ASS as a judge, and not in a good way: he sounded like he was drunk, and his comments on and off camera were off-putting.

  18. 18

    Much better. At least Shania has some singing talent!

  19. 19

    I cannot believe my eyes at these comments. Shania Twain is hands down the biggest joke ever played on the listening public. Absolutely devoid of one lick of talent. She has as much business judging singing talent as Adam Lambert has judging vaginas.

    Jennifer Lopez is a terrible singer. When she sings live she sounds so bad. Like, totally off key and just shitty. She may have been a good dancer and an okay actress but her singing sucks and so do all of her songs. She is not the best person for this job. Shania is a true singer. She doesn't need to lip sync or have a dance performance to entertain. And I HATE country music, so for me to actually like her is a very rare thing. But she is talented. At least more so than JLO.

  21. 21

    I'd stretch every orifice on Shania's body badly out of shape.

  22. 22

    Re: idiscuss – "best selling female recording artist"? WTF does that mean? Where do people just come up w/these RANDOM OPINIONS and then attempt to pass them off as fact??? The RIAA (they officially CERTIFY album sales here in America) list Barbra as number ONE selling female recording artist, Madonna as TWO, WHOREiah Scarey as THREE and Whitney as FOUR. Sorry, your girl didn't even make TOP FOUR selling female recording artists. Check your facts, you douche!

    I think Shania Twain would be an excellent judge for the show !
    J.LO was not their smartest choice anyway.

  24. 24

    Singing is NOT Jlo's expertise. She Can't sing. Shania is beautiful and shes Can sing.
    Jlo is just So Yesterday!

  25. 25

    Shania - Shania - Shania! Me and all my girlfriends will watch the show again if she's on it. AI cannot stand on it's own without Simon; but Shania is just right for the part.

  26. 26

    Shania all the way! say no to JLame!

  27. 27

    No friggin' way!!! That would be amazing!!! Country artists normally don't have that great of a run on idol, maybe she can give them a boost! :P

  28. 28

    Jennifer doesnt really interest me… but id totall watch idol more if Shania was a judge! shes great. :)

  29. 29

    Shania Twain is the right choice!

  30. 30

    Shania Twain is the best choice!

  31. 31

    I think Shania would be a great judge. Her and her husband are in the business so they know it well.

  32. 32

    I hope Shania is the next AI judge. She was a good guest judge.

  33. 33

    Re: Chasenip – What is with the name calling? LOL Shania has the number 1 selling album by a female of all time and the number 1 selling album by a female from the last decade. I'm pretty sure that is what the other commenter meant. The only reason she isn't in the top four as you say is because she releases hasn't released an album of new material in 8 years. But yeah, you could say that she is freakin' loaded. Gaga, Beyonce, Rihanna… etc.. can't touch her when it comes to album sales.

    Shania would be a great judge! She's got my vote!!!
