"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.

18 million for Mariah?? Between politicians who make an obscene amount of money for the lousey job they do, the millions & millions of dollars professional atheletes and actors are raking in, you wouldnt think there are millions of people in our country who cant afford to feed or clothe their kids and who are having their homes forclosed on because they have been unemployed for so long they are losing everything! Its disgusting and shameful how the entertainment world throws money like this around. None of them are worth what they are making. So choke on your money you spoiled rotten bas*ards. It cant buy you happiness.

I think he could be a good judge from a musical standpoint. But from a personal standpoint, I think he has too many drug arrests to put him on a the pedestal that is American Idol. I think it would send the wrong message to the youthful audience.

Snoop's a no-brainer on this one -


Makes perfect sense -


just what A.I. needs -


A Judge willing to put his self on the line -


Take some responsibility :


-for the success of the show - the ratings -


-Rather than Steven Tyler's:


"I'm just here for the paycheck."

"Snoop, Snoop, Snoop, Snoop, Snoop, Snoop, Snoop - "


"bring along Chas Man as well (Charlie Sheen)."


Winning!!!


Lissen-up for a chance, A.I. I'M DOWN WITH YOU.

Just what Fox wants for the judge of a show aimed at families... a pothead. Snoop posts pics everyday of his weed and him smoking blunts. That's the image they're looking for.

Love or hate his music, he would make that show a comedic success! He's so damned funny! More than I can say for most of the previous judges. I can see him and Ryan going at it. Two totally different types of people, but both very humorous. What a riot that would be!
