Seems ABC’s American Idol is is going to be like a high school reunion! “They wanted a panel of all ex contestants, a source tells Us Weekly. “Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Hudson were all on their wish list.” But they did land Idol alum Chris Daughtry.
While Daughtry did not win his season, Season 5 (2006), finishing fourth. Taylor Hicks was voted the winner that season, with Katherine McPhee, the runner-up. Despite his shocking departure, Daughtry, 37, is one of the biggest stars to come out American Idol. He and his band Daughtry have sold the third most records behind Clarkson and Underwood.
It was announced earlier today the Katy Perry has also signed on to be a judge on the sleeping competition. Unfortunately, the relaunch was unable to land Clarkson or Hudson for the premiere season. Both artists will be judging contestants on rival show ‘The Voice’.
There’s still room though for Carrie Underwood or Adam Lambert, Kellie Pickler, or Fantasia Barrino.
