While Mariah Carey may be TOO exquisitely expensive to park her delightful derriere on an American Idol judges seat, the QUEEN of soul is alll about searching for America's next serenading sensation!
The iconic Aretha Franklin has expressed interest to fill one of the spots left vacant from Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez on next season's American Idol!
The woman who deserves MAJOR RESPECT states:
"Yes I am interested as a judge!"
So just imagine: Randy Jackson bringing his seasoned AI judging experience, Aretha her immense knowledge of sound, insane vocal talent and YEARS in the business…
And *COUGH* Perez will bring his industry/pop culture knowledge, critical thinking skillz, and feverish passion for ALL types of music! *COUGH*
Sounds like a dream team to us! Ha!
