“American Idol” winner Kris Allen is already thinking about getting into politics.

The 23-year-old acoustic crooner from Conway, Arkansas, duets with Mike Huckabee during an appearance on the former Arkansas governor’s Fox News Channel show scheduled to air Saturday.

Huckabee, who ran unsuccessfully for the Republican presidential nomination last year, backs up Allen on bass for The Beatles’ “Yesterday.”

During the appearance, Allen asks: “Maybe someday I could be the Governor of Arkansas, right?”

Huckabee replies: “It’s a great gig. It really is.”
