With all the names being thrown around as potential judges for Season 12 of American Idol, Mariah Carey is making it clear who she’d like to work with on the panel: rocker Lenny Kravitz!

M.C. shared a picture of herself with Lenny last night on Twitter, tagging the official Idol handle and writing, “What's going on? need the info!! What about this combo? : ) if we could ever get him to do it!

Lenny responded in a flash, saying, “Girl, we've known each other since we were teenagers. How fun would that be?!

Between touring all over the world this fall and filming for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,
his plate might already be full.

A recent report indicated that the showrunners are looking to have four judges lined up for next season, including Mimi, a country star, a Latin artist, and a pop star (a spot potentially being filled by Nicki Minaj). Where Lenny might fit into that arrangement is unclear, but we still think he’d be an interesting choice!
