We told you about it earlier. Aretha Franklin has thrown her name into the hat to sit on the judging panel next season for American Idol. We are quite confused because we thought the point of changing it up was to get younger judges who would bring in the younger viewers. Aretha Franklin is a great artist, but most 20 year olds don’t have a clue who she is. We do not see how she would help the ratings of American Idol go up! What do you think? The Buzz weighs in below on what they think about it. Let us know what you think by commenting below!
