Don't look for Joss Stone to be judging any American Idol auditions in the future.

The singer has revealed that she turned down an offer to appear as a guest judge on the show.

The 19-year-old singer was invited on the show by Simon Cowell, but refused because she is opposed to the "cruel" nature of TV talent searches."I find these shows far too cruel," Joss said. "Music should be allowed to develop naturally."

Stone's third album, Introducing Joss Stone, will be released in March. We'd pretty sure she'd have agreed that Sundance Head has a big future, though.
