Shania Twain to Judge Idol?

Jennifer Lopez may be out as a replacement judge on American Idol—and from the names of other judges circling, it seems that the Idoldom is in a state of chaos. On Wednesday, Nick Cannon told the Hollywood Reporter that his wife, Mariah Carey, “talks about” becoming the next Idol judge. “She says, ‘I would love to do that,’” he said. “I don’t know if she has enough time, though, but if they could work with her schedule, I know she would love to do Idol. Let’s start the campaign!” But on Thursday, TMZ reported that country singer Shania Twain is the backup for Lopez. The Daily Beast also learned that Courtney Love has been floated as a potential judge.
