T-Pain has his eyes set on one of America’s most popular TV shows. During a recent interview with MTV News, the singer decided that competing on “American Idol” might be a good career move. He jokes, quote, “the way they’re selling records when they come off of there, I need to be a part of that competition. I don’t know if they let you use Auto-Tune, but if they do, I’m a shoo-in. I’m two shoes in! I’m a pair of shoes in.” T-Pain’s “Revolver” record is expected in stores sometime later this year. His last release was 2008’s “Thr33 Ringz,” which opened at number one on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The record has since been certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.
