    Toby Keith has said "Thanks, but no thanks" to American Idol. His rep confirmed that he turned down the offer to join Season 12 of the show alongside newly announced judge Mariah Carey.

    The rep said that the "Red Solo Cup" singer was flattered to receive the offer but felt that the gig was just not for him.

    He probably turned down buckets of cash, too!

    Who should join the American Idol judges panel?
