Could Obama be the next American Idol?

TALENT: President Obama has been asked to appear on the American Idol

IT WAS only a matter of time before Barack Obama's silky smooth vocals, showcased at a recent fundraiser in New York, would catch the attention of the big bosses on American Idol.

It has been reported that Nigel Lythgoe, the man behind the popular singing contest, has invited the American President to appear on the show.

"We loved your vocal performance so much we'd love to invite you on to American Idol this Season for a duet with Al Green [sic]," Lythgoe wrote on Twitter.

Lythgoe was referring to Obama's flawless, albeit short, redention of Al Green's Let's Stay Together in front of a packed auditorium at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem earlier this month.

Obama is yet to reply to Lythgoe's request.
