It’s a new dawn and a new day for “American Idol.”
E! Online reports that Jennifer Hudson has signed on a judge for the show’s upcoming season. Fox hasn’t made the official announcement, but multiple sources claim it’s only a matter of time.
Producers hope The “Idol” alum/Oscar winning actress/weight loss commercial queen will help bring back viewers to Fox’s fast-falling franchise. And J-Hud might not be the only former contestant sitting at the judges’ table next year. There’s buzz that Kelly Clarkson, Adam Lambert, and Clay Aiken are also being considered.
