This whole search for American Idol Season 12 judges is starting to give us a serious case of whiplash!

After Brad Paisley was mentioned as a possible contender for Idol’s Season 12 judging line-up, an evaluation of his touring schedule gave us serious reason to believe the country superstar just wouldn’t have enough time to do the show.

But now, new reports suggest that Brad’s still being considered for Steven Tyler’s old judging seat. He and his team are reportedly meeting with show execs this week in Los Angeles to discuss the possibility of him joining Idol.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: Brad could bring some much-needed grounding to the show, especially opposite Mariah Carey and her diva persona!
