The rumors are true! Jennifer Hudson is indeed in talks to return to American Idol…as a judge. But, there’s one catch. Sources close to Hudson’s camp have told HipHollywood exclusively that Hudson will only do so if Kelly Clarkson returns as well.
According to the source, Fox is cleaning house and is now speaking with past AI winners to return as judges. On their wish list: Hudson, Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert.
Hudson’s camp tells us that Jennifer is intrigued by the idea of returning to the place that helped propel her to superstardom but will only do so if Clarkson joins her.
Hudson returned just last week to perform during the show’s season finale. Check out her performance with Idol’s Season 12 winner Candice Glover, singing Natalie Cole’s “Inseparable.”
