Shania Twain Visiting 'American Idol' as Guest Judge


Shania Twain


The country singer will assist the three judges in selecting those with talents in Chicago the end of this month.

"American Idol" is adding a spice of country music to the judging panel. Shania Twain is confirmed to be a guest judge in the Chicago round auditions held on August 30 and 31. She will sit next to Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi to filter those with the potential to be an Idol.

Shania is the latest female guest invited to the reality series to fill in the vacant spot left by Paula Abdul. Victoria Adams aka Posh Spice was the first to get the guest seat last week, helping the three regular judges to select a few hopefuls in Boston auditions. Mary J. Blige joined the relay by auditioning in Atlanta on August 16 and 17.

Shania's name was mentioned in the last few days as one of the guest judges along with Jessica Simpson's. However, unlike Shania's, Jessica's stint is claimed "not true at all" by her rep.

On another news, Paula Abdul reportedly is in talks with FOX to return to the show since she became a huge interest to ABC. "Paula isn't lowering her price in any meaningful way. She wants a Seacrest-level deal," said a source. Host Ryan Seacrest struck a three-year deal worth $45 million.
