American Idol on FOX‘s season eleven auditions are well underway, and with the new season, could we possible be treated to a performance by Barrack Obama? Apparently, Nigel Lythgoe has invited the President of The United States to perform on the show. What’s that all about? Read on for the scoop!
President Obama on American Idol? Yes, we are serious, it could be a possibility! Nigel Lythgoe apparently caught wind of Barrack Obama singing his rendition of Al Green’s Let’s stay together at an event in Harlem recently, and the executive producer took it upon himself to invite The Unites States President to the show – for a performance! Nigel Lythgoe posted on Twitter recently, saying: “@BarackObama we loved your vocal performance so much we’d love to invite you on to #AmericanIdol this Season for a duet with Al Green.”
Wow, we wonder if Barrack Obama will take him up on the offer? Nigel Lythgoe also dissed Barrack Obama’s rival, Mitt Romney, who was also snagged singing at a rally this week in Florida. Nigel took to Twitter for that as he posted: “If it were an election based on vocal talent @barackobama would beat Romney hands down. Mitt was very flat singing America the Beautiful.”
Anyone who has watched Nigel Lythgoe knows that he loves a good joke as well, so we wonder if he was serious about inviting the President to American Idol. Would you like to see Barrack Obama perform on Idol? Comment and share your thoughts with us below!
