Alanis Morissette: “I Have Been in Conversations” for American Idol
Is American Idol about to play host to the weirdest '90s mash-up ever?
Rocker Alanis Morissette confirms that she is in talks to sit next to '90s pop princess Mariah Carey at the judges table.
Is Kanye West joining American Idol?
"Yes, I have been in conversations about it, and that's the degree to which I can share the info right now," Morissette told CNN Tuesday."I live to mentor, so my heart is much more open to the idea of that than even 10 years ago when I, perhaps, wasn't in a position to be able to offer much advice, solicited or otherwise. [B]ut I love watching people and just getting really curious about what they want and what they need and what their goals are, and then I can support them. I would do it formally, for sure."
Morissette is a big departure for the flashier names that have been thrown around in recent days including Kanye West and Nicki Minaj, just to name a few. But no matter how much we all love the '90s, it's a little hard to picture Morissette — the then-queen of hard-edged and occasionally sexually explicit girl-power anthems — sitting next to Carey, the perennial, turtleneck-loving girl next door of the era. But then again, this is a show that put Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez together for not one but two seasons, so anything's possible, right?

Morissette, however, is no stranger to singing competition series. She dueted with Idol runner-up Crystal Bowersox on the 2010 American Idol season finale and also performed with The X Factor finalist Josh Krajcik during the show's Season 1 performance finale. The 38-year-old most recently served as a guest mentor on Adam Levine's team on The Voice last season.
Morissette is set to release her eighth studio album, Havoc and Bright Lights, on Tuesday.
