Now that Jennifer Lopez is out and Mariah Carey is filling her spot, we are left to speculate as to who should be replacing Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler on American Idol. Kelly Clarkson has become quite the star after winning the first season of the show in 2002 and some have begun to start rumors that she would be making a return to Idol as a judge.
When asked if she would take a seat at the judge’s table, Kelly said, “I don’t like the judging part of it. That’s what I liked about Duets.”
She went on to say, “I got to actually mentor them and is was more fun. I don’t think I’d be honest. I think I’d get home and be like, ‘Did you see that boy? He was bad!’ I don’t think I’d say that on TV because people would hate me!”
She added that she does approve of Mariah’s addition to the talent search. She added, “I’m kind of super proud that I’m from the show and Mariah Carey’s going to be on it. Just because I’m a huge fan of hers.”
Would you watch the show if Kelly Clarkson signed on to be a judge?
