President Obama on ‘American Idol?’ Yes, we are serious, it could be a possibility! After the President’s brief rendition of “Let’s Stay Together” – Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe was so impressed that he tweeted Obama and asked if he would perform a duet on the show with Al Green.
“@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.”
Really? Like Obama doesn’t have anything better to do than go on ‘Idol?’ Wow, we wonder if Obama will take him up on the offer?
Lythgoe later acknowledged he had forgotten to check if Green was available to perform. Could this be a joke or a desperate move to boost the show’s sagging ratings? Anyone who has watched Lythgoe knows that he loves a good joke as well, so we wonder if he was serious about inviting the President to American Idol. No word yet as to whether Obama will accept the invitation to wow the American Idol judges with his presidential pipes. Hard to believe that we’ll see this one come to fruition, but with the way things are running in politics nowadays, who knows?
