'American Idol'

Exec Producer Pitches

Obama Duet with Al Green

1/30/2012 11:51 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"American Idol" honcho Nigel Lythgoe has balls -- he's asking Prez Obama to come on the show to do the song that made him even more famous -- with Al Green.

Seems Nigel was blown away by Obama's short rendition of "Let's Stay Together" at the Apollo Theater earlier this month.

So Nigel just tweeted the Prez, "We loved your vocal performance so much we'd love to invite you on to American Idol this Season for a duet with Al Green."

We'd watch.  But is it a good move for the Prez?

Nothing Pres Obama does seems to hurt him. He could take a dump on stage and the mainstream press would have headline : Obama Makes Chocolate Oatmeal
His singing was barely even shower quality - yeah, he belongs on American Idol, all right!

Obama should do what he was elected to do and concentrate on the mess in our country rather than his own personal gain. Smoke and mirrors seems to define his term as president.

I've never in my lifetime seen such hatred towards a president. I have a feeling why, can you guess?

The only thing President Obama needs to worry about is how if he is to be re-elected come November 2012 how he PLANS on getting the 13M already UNEMPLOYED - EMPLOYED AGAIN! This is getting ridiculous! I could a TINY RATS ASS if he can sing or even hold a note! I am sure his years of smoking hasn't helped!

Of course it would be a good move. Especially since he hasn't made any moves for 4 years. A bowel movement would even be an improvement.

Of course it's a good move for Obama. Any move would be good after 4 years no moves. A bowel movement would be better than what he's accomplished thus far.

This would assure him the Moron vote. This cross section of American voters make up more then 55% or the voting public. Win Win.

Yes, this will gurantee him the Moron Vote which currently make up 55% of the voting block and 95% of the Democratic party voting block. He well be a shoe in for re-ellection.
