'American Idol' Back-Up Plan -- Shania Twain

8/12/2010 4:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"American Idol" sources tell TMZ ... the Jennifer Lopez deal isn't dead yet, but if it does flatline ... "Idol's" next choice is country star Shania Twain.

Shania Twain American Idol
Shania was a hit on "Idol" this past season when she served as guest judge and mentor.

We're told Shania is Plan B.

TMZ has a thought ... What about Britney Spears? She's fun, she kinda knows music and you never know when she'll go off the hinges. And she's endlessly entertaining. Just sayin' ...

RH- You know, on a serious note, Nathan Lane knows a thing or two about the music/show/stage...probably not right for AI, though.

There's always Agador Spartacus...although they'd be afraid of his Guatemalaness...his natural HEAT. LMAO

If Shania becomes an American Idol judge, I might just watch AI for the first time since it aired. Then again shouldn't Shania be judging Canadian Idol? That would be more fitting as she is pro Canadian!

Either way, great that Shania is coming back into entertainment!

I agree with Mariah Carey. One of the best voices of any generation and a little Paulaess! She'd make a perfect judge!

Shania got to the top the hard way. She worked the small clubs in and around her small hometown in Cananda before she got her record deal. And with country stars winning Idol and then going on to do well in Country Music, it's time to get a Country star as a judge. Country music stations are the leaders in more markets than people want to admit.

Please say NO to J-LO!!She's so full of herself she's probably demanding they re-name the show American Idol w/J-Lo. Besides, who would take her advise? She cant sing. So, I would go w/Shania.

It may surprise a lot of people but Shania has the best selling record by a female artist of all time. We definitely don't need J.Lo the Diva or Britney. Steven Tyler will supply more than enough bombast for the show!
