TORONTO — Shania Twain once sang the lyrics “That don’t impress me much.” Now, she may get to utter those words to hopefuls on American Idol.
People.com is reporting the pop star from Timmins, Ont., is rumoured to be a possible candidate for a guest-judging position during the show’s upcoming auditions.
The website says there’s word that Twain may sit on the judging panel alongside Randy Jackson, Simon Cowell and Kara DioGuardi in Chicago on Aug. 30 to 31.
She would be a guest replacement for Paula Abdul, who recently announced she would not be returning to the show.
Recording artists Victoria Beckham, a.k.a. Posh Spice, and Mary J. Blige have already filled in for Abdul during the casting tour.
Twain hasn’t released an album of new material since 2002’s Up!
A posting on her website says the 43-year-old will give fans “a present” on her birthday on Aug. 28.
