American Idol Invites Obama To Duet With Al Green

Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes



“American Idol” executive producer Nigel Lythgoe was so impressed with President Obama’s rendition of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” that he’s invited the Commander-in-Chief to perform on the reality show.

Lythgoe tweeted on Monday, “@BarackObama we loved your vocal performance so much we’d love to invite you on to #AmericanIdol this Season for a duet with Al Green.”

Obama debuted his stellar singing talents during a fundraiser at Harlem’s Apollo Theater earlier this month.


Of course, it’s highly unlikely that the President will accept the invitation… but it’s still a pretty cool idea!

Would you watch Obama sing on “Idol”?
