Former American Idol Contestant Kimberly Locke
Ya heard it right! Kimberly Locke, former American Idol runner-up and Celebrity Fit Club contestant has come out of the woodwork to let us all know just how much she’d like to be on the Idol panel, despite reports that Pharrell and Nick Jonas are in negotiations for the remaining two spots.
Locke had this to say on the subject:
“I would love to sit in that chair and, you know, give some advice from the contestant’s standpoint because I’ve been on that stage and I know what it’s like,” Locke said Monday in an interview with The Associated Press. “When you’re a contestant on that show you do need that hard truth sometimes,” Locke says, anticipating her critical tone would fall somewhere between the styles of two former judges. “I’m not quite as nice as Paula (Abdul). Paula’s super, supernice but I don’t think I’m quite as mean as Simon (Cowell) either.”
Kim is the second former Idol contestant to speak out about an eagerness to become a judge. Adam Lambert threw his hat in the ring recently as well. We’re gonna give Kim a temporary insanity pass on this one and ask her to focus her high ambitions on her label, IAM Entertainment.
