Some of your favorite past American Idol contestants may be on the other side of the judging table next season.
After the show spent $40 million this past season to grab the biggest stars they could find (and watched it blow up in their face), the show is taking a different approach: bringing back old favorites that viewers have a vested interest in. Although no names have officially been confirmed, it's been reported that Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson are on board as judges for next season!
