Original 'American Idol' Judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul & Randy Jackson to Reunite on 'The Kelly Clarkson Show'!

The OG American Idol reunion is happening!

Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson, the original judges on the first seasons of American Idol, will reunite on Season 1 winner Kelly Clarkson‘s brand new talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, People confirmed on Wednesday (August 21).

“Just seeing how she’s done as an artist and now how she’s progressed on TV, not everyone’s like this by the way…she is the most loyal, nice person, I mean genuinely, she is how she is off-camera as she is on-camera. She doesn’t need to be told what to do, she knows exactly what she’s doing. And she’s a great person. She’s real, sweet, funny, a great girl. We’re lucky we found Kelly on the first season of Idol. I don’t think I would be standing here today,” Simon recently said at an America’s Got Talent taping on Tuesday (August 20).

This reunion will take place 17 years after Kelly won on the first-ever season of American Idol. Here’s what to expect on her new TV show!
