"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.

This is a joke right? The guy can barely speak English...and he ain't no singer (but then neither was Jennifer Lopez). How the hell is he going to judge singers? It's time for Idol to end it's run.

"Judgizzle"??! It's 2012! Are you still on that? I guess we can expect you to start using the term "swag" in your captions somewhere around 2017 too, huh?

I don't listen to any of his music but he is really huge in the music industry, he's funny and could probably bring in an expanded viewing crowd. Plus it would be hilarious to watch him and Mariah interact. I still probably won't watch this stupid show but he's a pretty great option.
