For someone who thoroughly enjoyed Shania Twain's stint as a guest judge during American Idol
's auditions in Chicago, this is very good news.TV Guide Magazine reports
that the country star is returning to the reality show this year, as a mentor to the finalists.
Sources from within the show can't confirm when she'll be returning, but it's safe to say this means we'll have a country music-themed week on the horizon.
Her representative wouldn't confirm the news, but he said she enjoyed doing Idol
. "She'd love to go back," he added.
So, Shania Twain as mentor this season--gotta be good news, right? Unlike Miley Cyrus and Adam Lambert--not that I'm belittling them, but Shania's got the experience to back everything she says up. And for this crop of contestants, it's a huge help.(Image courtesy of WENN)
