Kelly Clarkson set to be a judge on American Idol reboot


"We have felt as a family at The Voice that this person would fit in perfectly", Shelton said before introducing Clarkson.

"Very exciting announcement", ABC television host Robin Roberts said on Good Morning America on Tuesday.

The Voice has scored not one, but two American Idol alum for its upcoming seasons!

Sure, the prospect of American Idol itself returning is exciting, but the possibility of Kelly Clarkson returning as an American Idol judge has me jumping up and down, waving my hands around, and shouting from the rooftops.

This leaves American Idol in a pickle, given that the ABC revival needs to now find someone who will attract former viewers to the show.

Kelly teased Blake showing off her numerous GRAMMYs and other awards. Interestingly, TMZ reported that Kelly vaguely threw out her interest in returning, but alas, no dice.


Fans of country and pop singer, Kelly Clarkson, are looking forward to next spring, when the musical artist becomes a coach on NBC's The Voice. The Grammy victor has already issued a warning to Blake Shelton, 40, a coach and fellow country musician, besides being one of her friends, that she has plans to beat him.

However, since everything will remain under wraps for the time-being and none of the reports have been directly confirmed by the network, the predictions about the "American Idol" reboot are now expected to be nonstop in the next few days.

"She's like, the flawless person to judge on a show like that", Connick Jr. explained.

Clarkson rose to fame in 2002 after winning the first season of "American Idol" on Fox.

"In tears thinking of what this means and represents to me and knowing and walking the journey!" Clarkson was also a judge on ABC's short-lived singing competition "Duets". "I have no interest", the 57-year-old TV personality told Extra.

The X Factor US may have lasted only three seasons, but one of the best judges that show had was Demi Lovato. "I don't think anyone had any time to miss it". Plus, Demi got her start with Disney - does ABC want to choose someone who has connections to the parent company or the network?
