Alanis Morissette and Diddy in Talks to Be "American Idol" Judges

8/10/2012




In a radio interview yesterday, ALANIS MORISSETTE hinted that she might be in negotiations to be a judge on "American Idol" next season.  When asked if "Idol" has ever contacted her about judging, Alanis said, "I'm in talks with SOMEBODY right now, I can't name any names, but I'm pretty excited at the thought of doing it more formally.  I still have to investigate further, and that's all I can say."  (This comes to us from our friends at KMXB Mix 94.1 out of Las Vegas.  They have audio from their interview on their website)

Meanwhile, the "New York Post" is reporting that "Idol" has asked DIDDY if he's interested.  Supposedly, he isn't hot on the idea at this point.  Sources tell E! News that he's considered a "long shot."

There have been a lot of rumored potential "Idol" judges, including Nick Jonas, Pharrell, Brad Paisley, Will.I.Am, Fergie, Miley Cyrus, Aretha Franklin, Patti LaBelle, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj and Adam Lambert.
