You can cross Miranda Lambert from the list of potential judges when American Idol returns to TV.  Miranda Lambert tells Extra, “It’s the camera thing that gets me. Can we just do it over the phone? I appreciate the opportunity and I have to get my music out there, but that’s really where it stops there.”  Don’t know what she’s afraid of, but we all have our fears!  Miranda doesn’t like cameras!
