Kelly Clarkson Denies ‘American Idol’ Judging Gig

If ‘American Idol‘ wants an all-alum panel, unfortunately, Kelly Clarkson won’t be part of it.

Despite numerous reports that Clarkson would join confirmed judge Jennifer Hudson, as well as rumored fellow alumni judges Adam Lambert and Clay Aiken, her rep denied the deal to The Hollywood Reporter.

The latest stars rumored to be in talks to join the panel? The return of previous judge Jennifer Lopez, as well as the addition of rapper will.i.am. However, Will likely won’t be able to commit enough time to ‘Idol,’ according to sources — which makes sense. He’s busy promoting ‘#willpower’ and served as a judge on the U.K. edition of ‘The Voice,’ which could present a conflict of interest.

What’s more, sources say no one from ‘Idol’ has approached Lambert just yet, despite the ‘Trespassing’ singer being pretty enthusiastic about the chance to hop on over to the judges’ table. Someone call him!
