Well, the invitation has been made!

Earlier this month, President Barack Obama showed off his vocal chops, busting out Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" during a fundraiser at the Apollo Theater in Harlem. Shortly after that, American Idol Executive Producer Nigel Lythgoe invited Mr. Obama to appear on the reality show, tweeting:

”@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.”

So far, the White House has not responded, and it's unlikely the Commander In Chief will accept the invitation.

Check out the video of President Barack Obama singing "Let's Stay Together" by Al Green. Would you make it a point to watch, if the President accepted Idol's invitation?
