Obama asked to sing on American Idol


(WFLX) - During a speech last month at Harlem's Apollo Theatre, President Barack Obama broke up his rendition of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together".

"American Idol" executive producer Nigel Lythgoe, impressed, sent an invitation to the president asking him to sing a duet with Green on the show.

"@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," Lythgoe tweeted.

But what did Green think about Mr. Obama's snippet of his song? "Terrific... he nailed it," Green told TMZ.

Now the question is, will the president agree to Lythgoe's request?
