The people at American Idol just came up with the best idea ever! Will the new judges be former contestants?!
Best idea ever?
According to E! Online, American idol producers are looking at hiring Idol alums to fill the judging spots on the panel next season.
"It's Idol stars guiding the next generation" one Fox source told E!.
Of course the first ever American Idol winner, Kelly Clarkson, is one of the show's top choices along with singer-actress Jennifer Hudson. They're also looking at Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert to fill the third spot, as they're looking to go back to three judges.
Who could better judge the newcomers than the people who have been in their shoes?!
We really hope all of this talk is true because it would be SO awesome! What a brilliant way to still have cool celebs on the show but with a different spin than the other reality singing competitions out there.
What do you guys think? Should American Idol go with hiring former contestants as judges?
