It's the worst kept secret in Hollywood: American Idol will employ a new set of judges for Season 13.
Will beloved mentor Harry Connick Jr. be among them? Will a huge name such as Justin Bieber or Rihanna agree to come on board?
What changes will the show make to regain its ratings-based footing?
According to a new report, producers hope to revisit the past in order to boost the future, as they've allegedly contacted successful alums about coming on board the panel.
Sources tell E! News that Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson both have an interest in judging, while Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert are also possibilities.
How likely in this scenario? An insider says the show is "95 percent there" in terms of signing up past fan favorites.
We actually think it's a great idea. Do you concur? Should past contestants come back to judge Season 13?
