Jennifer Hudson is reportedly in talks to join the upcoming thirteenth season of American Idol as a judge, Deadline reports.

The 31-year-old entertainer would be the first American Idol alum to take a seat behind the table for the season set to begin in 2014.

Names that have also been thrown into the mix include other Idol alums Clay Aiken, Adam Lambert, and Kelly Clarkson, though her rep denied that she would be joining.

    Don’t watch the show, but this will definitely make it that I don’t watch. Can’t stand the woman. Sorry.

  • BloodbuzzOhio

    Has her career come to this? Remember when she won an Oscar for her amateurish acting?

  • kel

    Good move.

    I dont know if she has the right personality for it, I always thought she seemed a little fake, nice and pleasant, but not…genuine? It could just be her personality. I would like to see Kelli Pickler, Adam Lambert, and Kelly Clarkson. I think there should only be 3 judges, 4 is too many!

  • Simon

    Will they please take that stupid boring show off the air already.

  • SunnyAutumn

    Why don’t they just cancel this show…The judges are getting dumber by the minute. Jennifer has ZERO personality.

    If its true, Jennifer is a hypocrite. She recently attacked the show and said it needs to end now before it gets worse. I guess if they pay her she’ll change her mind about it. She has no personality and she’s a mediocre singer.

    I would totally start rewatching if they put Adam Lambert or Kelly Clarkson as a judge. I agree, 4 judges is def too many.

    I agree with a couple of you guys that say she isn’t or doesn’t seem genuine. I do find her to be fake. I would love to see her take a break from the spotlight, because I am tired of seeing her face. Almost everyday, there’s a stupid Weight Watchers commercial on with her in it.

    Only Kelly Clarkson.

  • Robocop

    Well, she’s come full circle. Oscars don’t seem to carry as much cache these days! Oh, well…

    If Keith Urban doesn’t come back I am through with AI. Jennifer Hudson said they should shut down AI last year (what a hypocrite)) she said it ran it’s course. Now that they are paying her it is a wonderful show. I started watching Idol last year because of one of the best judges they have ever had Keith Urban ( he knows how to criticize in a nice way) .
