Shania Twain as next 'American Idol' judge?

Country superstar Shania Twain has become the latest star rumored to be in talks to join the judging panel of American Idol (as we all know Simon Cowell left the show to concentrate in the upcoming X Factor, host Ellen De Generes quit and Kara Dioguardi was fired).

Last season on Idol, Twain served as a mentor for the contestants and guest judge and reportedly a hit with Idol fans. So if no deal is settled on another judge, she maybe the first in line to fill in one of the missing spots.

Personally, she's a good choice to be one of the judge. Aside from being one of first country artist to achieve major crossover success in pop music, Twain is a five-time Grammy award winner with a multiplatinum selling album worldwide. Her 1997 album Come On Over become the best selling album of all time by a female artist and the best selling country album of all time.

Check out some of the best tracks in that album:

MAN I FEEL LIKE A WOMAN shania is one of the few artists out there whose speaking voice is identical to her singing voice...this song rocks!
