'Bat of Out Hell' legend Meatloaf is vying for a role on TV talent show The Voice, hoping to uncover and nurture raw musical talent.
He was previously approached by US talent show American Idol but turned the producers, and Simon Cowell, down on their offer. Now, he feels he is ready to take on the role of a TV talent show judge.
"I think The Voice is a better show (than Idol). Man, I would want to be a mentor on that show," he said in an interview with Spinner.com. "Let's put that out there right now... I would love it.
"I would take it so seriously, would work so hard and would give my heart and soul to that gig if I had it. I pride myself on being able to work like that."
The Voice launches in the UK on March 24, 2012, with Tom Jones, Will.i.am, Jessie J and that bloke from The Script on the judging panel.
Meatloaf as a TV talent show judge!? Yes please!
That would be hilarious!
