Rock singer Alanis Morissette opened up and revealed that she's had conversations with producers of "American Idol" to become a judge for the hit singing competition show next season.
"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.

Morrissette declined to go into further detail about the discussions at the Hollywood Rockwalk induction ceremony in Hollywood on Tuesday, Aug. 21.
She confirmed her interest in being an "Idol" judge when she told CNN "I would do it formally, for sure."
The "Jagged Little Pill" singer added that she lives "to mentor, so my heart is much more open to the idea of that than even 10 years ago."
"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."
R& B songstress Mariah Carey has been confirmed for the gig on season 12 and the addition of Morrissette to the judges' table would add balance thanks to her rock music background.
There is no word on who might fill the third seat. "Idol" regular Randy Jackson has been rumored to be moving to more of a mentoring role beginning next season.
TMZ reported that rappers Nicki Minaj and Kanye West were added to the list of possible participants to join "American Idol", including country singers Brad Paisley and Keith Urban. People reported music producer Pharrell Wiliams, Nick Jonas and Enrique Iglesias have also been thrown into the mix.
"American Idol" producers are working feverishly to match the judges who have signed on as judges to their rival shows: Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Cee-Lo Green will appear on "The Voice" while Britney Spears, Demi Lovato, L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell are confirmed as judges for "X Factor: USA."
