lea michele getty idol 'American Idol': 'Glee's' Lea Michele wants to mentorIs “American Idol” doing a Broadway or a movie night theme yet this season? Because if they are, “Glee” star Lea Michele wants to mentor.

Hollywood Life heard from an “Ellen DeGeneres Show” insider that Lea Michele was talking about mentoring for “American Idol” backstage before she taped her “Ellen” appearance. “She said that it would be easy because they’re on the same network and a movie or Broadway night would be perfect for her,” says the insider.

Even though she would be sad to miss out on meeting judge Simon Cowell, the insider says Michele definitely wants to come on next season if they can’t fit her in this season because she “really wants to teach the Idols about stage presence.”

We can’t argue with that! Lea Michele’s Broadway pedigree is top-notch and she certainly does have stage presence goin’ on.

What do you guys think? Should we start the “Lea Michele 4 ‘Idol’ Mentor” campaign?
