At this point, you have probably heard about President Barack Obama singing a few lines of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” while at a campaign event earlier this month — and it seems that the moment has even been noticed by some people associated with TV’s most-popular singing show.
In a rather tongue-in-cheek message posted by Nigel Lythgoe on Twitter, the “American Idol” executive producer said that the President has an invitation to come on and perform in the future:
“@BarackObama we loved your vocal performance so much we’d love to invite you on to#AmericanIdol this Season for a duet with Al Green.”
Could the President actually make a brief appearance? It’s possible that he could send in a video for an “Idol Gives Back” event — if it happens this year. (Tradition has always been for the show to do it every other season, and with that it could happen this time.)
While nothing is likely to come of this, Nigel is likely trying to just do one thing with this message — just on a pop-culture event for the benefit of his show.
