"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.

Just what AI needs for their family-oriented show: Someone who's produced a ton of porn.

It's been a couple years since I've seen that show, making that idiotic ghetto rat a judge would assure that it would be another two years I could spare myself the agony.

Heres an idea, get a bunch of regular people to judge the talent of a bunch of washed up celebs.
