Kanye West Turned Down A Seat At The American Idol Judges Table?!

Kanye West considered being a reality TV judge?!

Say whaaaaaa???

Ye has rendezvoused in reality before, appearing quite shy on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, so we can't imagine him on live television twice a week!

A source close to the rapper revealed that Yeezus was offered the final spot on American Idol's judging panel for the upcoming 13th season, but decided it would hurt his reputation to accept the coveted seat:

"He didn't want to go that mainstream. He didn't want to lose any street cred. So he turned it down."

The insider explained that Idol producers also met with other contenders for the spot, including, Will.i.am, Diddy, and Rodney Jerkins!

In the end, they reportedly traded a Black Skinhead singer for a doctor!

AI's final choice is apparently songwriter and record producer Dr. Luke!

The producer, who's worked with Katy Perry and Ke$ha is currently in talks to become the third judge on the FOX reality competition show!

He would join Keith Urban and (rumored returner) Jennifer Lopez, who are both judging alum!

So when will they make the official announcement confirming everyone?!

That's still a musical mystery, and we can hardly wait!

    never heard a single song of his and never want to hear anything he has to say anyway.
    don't think he has anything to contribute — his ego is too bloated to let it get by

    Thank God I want to watch Keith Urban on there this year, I couldn't watch last year because that Minaj creature made the show unwatchable.Kayne is the only person I can think of who would be worse than her. Unless it's his urinal cake plastic fake girlfriend.

    It's pretty mainstream to grab mics (and for free) at yawn awards shows.

    Think of his missed opportunities! A contestant singing, Kanye interrupts them, "Ima let you finish, but Beyonce is the best singer of ALL TIME! Of ALL TIME!" So many chances for him to make an even bigger fool of himself and he threw it away… Well, at least he will keep his street cred…. HAHAHAHA!

    I would never, never, ever watch anything that Kanye West did on TV or Movies.
    He is one angry guy…………………and, I would drive 100 miles to avoid him.
