First “American Idol” locked in Mariah Carey. Then Nick Jonas and Pharrell Williams were reported to be in talks to be new judges. Yesterday, The New York Post revealed that Sean “Diddy” Combs was also a contender.

Now, Alanis Morissette confirmed that she too, is in talks to join the show.

Morissette told Las Vegas CBS radio station Mix 94.1 that she has been in discussions for the Fox show’s upcoming 12th season, stating, “I’m in talks with somebody right now. I can’t name any names, but I’m pretty excited at the thought of doing it more formally,” she said. “I still have to investigate further, and that’s all I can say.”

Of course, Alanis Morissette is an old hand at these music competitions, having mentored on NBC’s “The Voice” and even performed on “Idol” in a previous season.
