Will “American Idol” Bring Back Carrie Underwood & Adam Lambert As Judges? 

By MelissaOnK923

With American Idol returning to our TV’s, this huge reboot has to be huge. The show itself before it ended, was a pretty big success and created some huge artists today like Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson and more. Now with the show coming back, there are rumors that Carrie Underwood and Adam Lambert (old contestants who have won in the past) will be joining Katy Perry as judges on “American Idol”.  “Us Weekly” claims that Chris Daughtry is also in the running, but “Variety” says that’s not true.
Ryan Seacrest is also closing in on a deal to return as host . . . supposedly.  Hopefully, ABC will offer some concrete details when it reveals its fall schedule later today. Meanwhile, a Fox executive was asked about losing “Idol” to ABC . . . and she said, quote, “It’s obviously a tough one for us.  It feels bad knowing it’s coming back on another network.”  
 She also said it feels, quote, “extremely fraudulent” to bring the show back so soon, after they hyped Season 15 as the show’s farewell season just last year. She added, quote, “We spent $25 million sending the message that it was the farewell season and fans responded.”
