American Idol is doing a full cleanse with their judge's panel, and their first new addition is actually a pervious competitior, Jennifer Hudson. She accepted the offer whole-heartedly.

Rumor has it that the show is planning on recruiting more past competitores, but so far Kelly Clarkson has refused. We will see where this goes, but congrats to Jennifer!


Get excited for Season 13 coming in 2014.
