Rumors were swirling earlier this week that Kelly Clarkson would be signing on as a judge ‘Americal Idol’ when the show starts on ABC. Today, this rumors have sadly been put to rest.
TMZ reported moments ago, “…instead of judging on the new “American Idol” … she’s joining NBC’s (The Voice).
Kelly made the announcement by video chatting with Blake Shelton on his Facebook page. The superstar singers joked they’d been trying to put the deal together for years, but Kelly kept getting pregnant.
The timing is no coincidence — TMZ broke the story, ‘Idol’ producers wanted Clarkson to be a judge when the show returns on ABC in March 2018. Our sources say negotiations were underway, but the sides couldn’t agree on money.”
