"American Idol" could finally be going to pot this fall -- because spliffmaster rap legend Snoop Dogg says he'd LOVE to fill the last remaining judging spot on the show.

During an interview this week, Snoop -- recently reincarnated as reggae artist Snoop Lion -- reportedly said, "I'll do 'American Idol'"

TMZ broke the story ... Jennifer Lopez' judging spot has been filled by Mariah Carey -- who inked a record $18 MILLION contract for her first year on the show. So far, Steven Tyler's spot is still up for grabs.

"Idol" spokesman Neil Schubert would not comment on whether Snoop was being considered to fill the empty seat.

Yeah dogg.

Someone like him is one of the only things I can think of that might keep the ratings from plummeting. Mariah will be boring so they need a dramatic presence for the other judge.

Snoop and Mariah...I could see that working.
Mariah's a sweetheart, her b-tch diva reputation is just jealousy from other women singers and celebs who notice Mariah has the goods, from her awesome talent to her pretty face and smokin' bod ;D

They should get Gene Simmons to be a judge. Mariah would be squirming in her seat sitting next to him.

American Idol needs to just give it up and leave. Its been declining for years and now with no original person, and everything shown as the staged drama it is, let it go.

Fo Shizzle to the Dogg Marley.

But as a born-again Rasta, does the Master of
Smoke get a religious exemption for Ganja now?

Everybody and his brother is now going to say they want to be a judge on these shows.


As long as they are going to shell out this crazy money, a lot of unqualified celebrities are going to line up for the gig. Hell, I'd do it for half that much.
