The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, has put her name in the mix for a crack at one the missing judges spots on American Idol since Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler announced that they won’t be returning to the singing competition show.
In response to an email question asking Franklin whether she is interested in joining “Idol” as a judge or a mentor, the singer responded, “Yes I am interested as a judge!”
Although I think it would be great TV, I couldn’t imagine the diva as a judge. I like her just as she is–a legendary singer. I don’t need to see her as a dream crusher. Anyway, American Idol has seen it’s better days. No need to embark on a sinking ship. It’s time for a hiatus. What do you think?
