Now that Mariah Carey’s in for American Idol Season 12, bringing in all the soulful diva-ness the show could possibly need along with her, could the show stand to have some country flair?

According to Deadline, country superstar Brad Paisley is currently being considered by Fox for a spot at the Idol judging table, and that table might be set for four next year instead of three, with Randy Jackson reportedly returning to one of those seats.

Brad, of course, has appeared on Idol before, but he’d be the first country singer at the judging table since the show began, though many of Idol’s top alums have gravitated toward that genre.

The report also indicates that Randy Jackson is likely to come back now that Mariah’s on board.
