During an interview this week, Snoop reportedly said, “I’ll do ‘American Idol,'” according to TMZ.

He would join Mariah Carey, who signed a record $18 million to replace Jennifer Lopez in the fall, and Randy Jackson. 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.
