Warwick has been fighting to get clearance to perform the fantastic foursomes songs on the Idol stage for years to no avail.
He laments that Beatles jams are notoriously difficult to obtain rights to, but predicts that this year things are get more promising than ever for a future Idol-style BeatleMania.
Says Warwick: We are finally in active dialogue and negotiations for Beatles songs, but well see what happens.
But getting the rights to the timeless tunes are only half the battle.
Warwick has had lots of trouble finding a worthy mentor to coach the Idol contestants through a Beatles theme night and insists he cant just get any artist for the job.
He adds, We need a mentor thats up to the challenge and can bring justice to the Beatles genre. Until we find ourselves a deserving mentor, we wont be seeing a Beatles night on the show just yet.
