Former 'American Idol' contestants Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson are set to return to the show as judges.
Kelly - who won the first season in 2002 - and Jennifer - who placed seventh in 2004 - have been approached by producers to join the panel of the new series after they decided to replace Mariah Carey, Nicki Minajand Keith Urban.
Insiders believe 'American Idol' will struggle to attract A-List judges next season.
While Randy Jackson has quit and producers are reportedly hoping to replace his fellow judges Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban to boost falling ratings next year, insiders believe they won't find it easy to attract top talent.
Nicole Kidman's husband Keith Urban hasn't given her any judging tips before her stint on the Cannes Film Festival jury.
The 45-year-old actress is part of the star-studded panel - which is headed by Steven Spielberg - but admits she's been thrown in at the deep end with her new role because her 45-year-old spouse hasn't offered up his words of wisdom from his experience as an 'American Idol' judge.
