American Idol alums Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson may be returning to American Idol as judges. E! News reports that FOX would like to bring back former winners and contestants to serve as judges for the next season of the popular show. According to insiders, the show is also actively courting Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert to fill the final slot. The network has decided to return to the three judge format after dumping Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban. Last year's fourth judge, Randy Jackson has announced that he will not be returning to the show. The deals are allegedly 95 percent done. An insider explained, "It's Idol stars guiding the next generation." The network is trying to reignite the show's disappointing ratings. A rep for FOX said, "We aren't commenting on the judge speculation."
