Country singer, Shania Twain, is in Chicago yesterday and today to play guest judge with Randy Jackson, Kara DioGuardi and Simon Cowell. According to “insiders” she’s getting along just famously
Just days after opening up about her relationship with Frdric Thibaud, Shania Twain is also getting cozy ‘â€ professionally-speaking ‘â€ with Simon Cowell during her stint as a guest judge for American Idol’s Chicago auditions.
‘She’s loving American Idol. She’s having the best time, ‘ says a source close to the singer, who is filling Paula Abdul’s vacant seat during auditions Monday and Tuesday in the Windy City. ‘She and Simon have a really great rapport with each other. They’re funny together.’
Cowell isn’t the only one having fun with Twain, 44. ‘The crew loved working with her, ‘ says an Idol source. ‘Everyone thought she was a great addition to the judges’ table. She showed up in good spirits and had a lot of fun. She was clearly really excited to be a part of the day.’
Are the Idol producers considering adding a country singer to the panel? Not a crazy idea, considering the many Idols who go on to record country albums. (Carrie Underwood, Bucky Covington, Kellie Pickler, Josh Gracin to name the most successful of the bunch. And it looks like Danny Gokey will be joining them…)
