Snoop Dogg wants ‘American Idol’ role

Snoop Dogg wants `American Idol` role Snoop Dogg wants to be a judge on American Idol. After hearing of the millions of dollars the judges earn on the television competition, the rapper revealed he is interested in joining the panel. During an interview this week, he said: "I'll do American Idol." Apparently when he heard Mariah Carey is earning about $18 million a year for a one-year contract with a renewal option, Snoop Dogg looked to his manager and jokingly yelled: "Get on it!" The music icon is known for often swearing and generally using offensive language. However he said he would be mindful of his tone if he appeared on the family friendly entertainment program. Still the marijuana supporter admitted that he had a limit when it came to cleaning up his image in his personal life. He said: "I'll clean my act up, but I'm still Rastafari." The 40-year-old star announced earlier this week that he's using the name Snoop Lion for an upcoming reggae album. He now considers himself a Rastafarian after what he calls a life-changing trip to Jamaica, and is also releasing a documentary about his rebirth. Both the album and film are called 'Reincarnated.' American Idol returns in January and singer Mariah is filling one of the two seats made available following Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler's exits last month.

    A rapper on a singing show?
    Use your head Idol people.
    Either way, please end this show soon and start something fresh. Even the judges get tired of making millions off the show and move on.

    C-Dub:
    – both those two judges were let go (contracts not renewed)
    – sure, why not put a rapper to freshen the show, you just implied it’s not fresh
    – finally, stop watching it and maybe it will go away?

    That is all.

    I say having Snoop as a judge on American Idols a great idea. The show needs something fresh and to breathe life back into it once again. I know that Snoop would be the one who could do just that. Ive watched the show over the past four seasons and I never get enough of the incredible talent people have. Now I can enjoy watching AI during primetime commercial free with my Auto Hop feature. This feature has me excited being able to skip commercials on PrimeTime Anytime programming after my coworker from Dish showed me its functions. The commercials are always available to watch, it just eliminates you from having to manually fast forward them. I always hate going past the programming then skip back if I pass the show, which will eliminate me having to do this. No more searching for the remote to fast forward commercials and I can save battery life too.
