A source in the midst of the “American Idol” negotiations tells Gossip Cop that irrespective of whether they strike a deal with Jennifer Lopez, “Shania Twain was being considered as a fourth judge from the start.”
The source said should Lopez and the producers at “American Idol” be unable to come to terms, Twain would almost assuredly be bumped into her position at the judge’s table.
Twain, you’ll recall, did a solid job last year as a guest judge.
Earlier today, Gossip Cop noted – as we exclusively announced last month – that Steven Tyler is on board as a judge.
An official announcement about who will join the judges’ panel is expected within the next two weeks.
I wish they would admit that they don’t have a solid show without Simon. I don’t even think I would watch the auditions without him. That man is the holder of some of the funniest sound bytes of the past decade!
