Chris Daughtry Joins 'American Idol' Judging Panel (Report)

Chris Daughtry has reportedly joined the judging panel for the American Idol reboot.

The 37-year-old former contestant, who came in fourth place on season five, will join Katy Perry on the panel if both of their deals go through, according to Us Weekly.

“They wanted a panel of all ex contestants,” a source told the mag. “Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Hudson were all on their wish list.”

Chris went on to have big success with his band Daughtry after his run on the show in 2006.
