ARETHA FRANKLIN SHOWING INTEREST IN IDOL?!!

An idol in her own right, Aretha Franklin has put her name in the running to sit  behind the judges’ table on Fox’s hit show American Idol. CNN reports that in response to an e-mailed query, Franklin  said that she is interested in taking one of the spots left vacant by Jennifer  Lopez and Steven Tyler who announced they would not be returning to  Idol next season.
After seeing Franklin perform a riveting 90-minute  set at the ESSENCE Music Festival last week, there’s no doubt that the  Queen of Soul would offer valuable insight and inspiration to the hopeful  contestants.  Franklin says she has “long been a fan of the show.”
As if having one legend join the lineup wouldn’t be enough, Franklin  hinted that she’d also be interested in bringing vocal powerhouse Patti LaBelle  along with her.
There’s no word from Fox Network on the possibility of  Franklin or LaBelle participating in the show next season.
