Somebody Is Finally Making Good Decisions!
After finishing Season 12 on a low note, producers of hit show American Idol isn't wasting no time rebuilding its brand. Rumors has it, former contestant and Chicago native Jennifer Hudson has just signed on to be AI's new judge.
According to E!, multiple sources have confirmed the Oscar-winning singer to sit on the judges panels come Season 13. We also hear current judges Randy Jackson, Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, and Keith Urban will not be returning.
Hudson didn't win the competition in the past, but I think this will be a great look for American Idol. After leaving the show, she went on to have a fabulous career with acting and music. Hudson has won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in Dreamgirls and she's a Grammy Award winner as well.
Last week, Hudson made an appearance on American Idol's Season 12 Finale. She took the stage with Candice Glover, who happens to be this years AI winner.
