American Idol is so desperate for ratings, they’re wanting Chris Brown and Rihanna to perform together on the show.

A source close to American Idol has told E! that producers are in talks with Chris Brown and Rihanna about performing together on the show this season.

“They want Chris and Rihanna to reunite on the show,” the insider says.

If the rumor is true, it will be their first public appearance together since 2009, when Brown was arrested for assaulting Rihanna.

The last time they appeared onstage together was in 2008—and, judging by the controversy kicked up by Brown’s performance (and win) at the Grammys this month, plenty of critics would react harshly to the pair collaborating on stage.

But if this did happen, which song would they do—assuming that the pair’s two just-released remixes would be the likely choices? It’s unlikely they could perform Rihanna’s sexually charged “Birthday Cake,” which may be too risqué for prime time, so maybe they’d do Brown’s “Turn Up the Music”? Or something else entirely?

Rihanna’s rep denied the rumor, saying, “It’s not true.”

But in any case, Fox has not yet approved the pairing, our source tells us, adding that the idea is still in the very early stages of discussion.
The network had no comment.

I will be so upset if the rumors are true. I know a lot of you think I just need to get over this – and move on – but I do not think it’s appropriate for them to be on stage together again. Especially on a family-friendly show like American Idol. Idol is obviously hurting for ratings, and know that this would put a spike of interest in the show.

What do you think about the two of them performing together again?

I don’t like it at all. I would never watch that show again.

Nice plug for beating your girlfriend. Nothin’ wrong with that.

I agree, I’d never watch again.

She’s a fool, risk taker but wise enough to do what the music gangsters financing C. Brown tell her to do, and J Z is okay with it.. but acting all protective naysayer because of his uh,.. connections.
