Shania Twain to judge `American Idol`?

Los Angeles: Canadian singer Shania Twain has become the latest celebrity to be in talks about joining `American Idol` as a judge.

The 44-year-old country music star is said to be in talks to sit on the judges` table on the 10th season of the hit FOX TV talent show, People reported online.

"Shania is a huge fan of the show and she had a great time as a mentor," a source said.

The Grammy-award-winning singer was a guest judge on the show during last season`s Chicago auditions, and mentored the contestants in an episode in April.

With Simon Cowell and Ellen DeGeneres both departing the talent search, the network had been pursuing a number of celebrities as potential judges, including Aerosmith`s Steven Tyler and pop star Jennifer Lopez.
