Brad Paisley's name is the latest to be floated for the position of judge on American Idol. Deadline has reported that producers are "seriously considering" Paisley for the part following the exits of Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez. Veteran judge Randy Jackson is expected to return, according to reports.
A representative for the "Camouflage" singer told The Boot that they have "no information to share" at this time. However, MTV News reports that Paisley's current tour would finish in time for debut of Idol's season 12.
Meanwhile, the most recent addition to the program, Mariah Carey, has hit Twitter to remark on her anticipation for the show to start:
"It's gonna be so much fun working on @AmericanIdol. As a singer-songwriter, I'm excited to help find and nurture new talent."
