Twain previously was a guest judge and mentored contestants on American Idol. After the end of the ninth season, she nearly became a judge but Jennifer Lopez ultimately got that job.

She’s one of the best-selling female artists in history but she’s gone 14 years without releasing an album. Now she’s getting ready to release her fifth studio LP in late spring of 2017.
