The Voice: Meat Loaf Says He'd Love A Job On The Singing Show

Rocker Meat Loaf wants a job on TV talent show The Voice - because he likes the idea of becoming a mentor to a raw talent.

The Bat Out of Hell star has revealed he was approached to be a judge on American Idol before the talent show's second season - but turned producers down.

And now he's ready to become a regular on The Voice, which has become a worldwide hit following its debut in America last year.

He tells Spinner.com: "I think The Voice is a better show (than Idol). Man, I would love to be a mentor on that show. 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.

"If they had room, I'd do it in a minute."
