Fantasia Barrino: I would judge 'Idol'!

  • Fantasia Barrino was 'American Idol' sesaon 3 winner
  • Barrino is out with a new album and a new outlook on life


This week we learned “American Idol” wanted to shakeup the judging panel mid-season and replace Mariah Carey.

Here at Showbiz Tonight, we think if “Idol” brings anyone new to the judges panel it should be a former winner. So, we asked season three champ Fantasia Barrino if she would take the gig?

“I would love to go back to ‘Idol.’ Being a music baby and raised up in music I have an ear for music,” Fantasia tells Showbiz Tonight's A.J. Hammer. “If they ever called me I would.”

Showbiz Tonight will have more with Fantasia at 11p.m. ET/PT on HLN.
