There’s been a lot of American Idol news this week, so we thought we’d go ahead and clean up and clear up everything, to minimize confusion.
Kelly Clarkson was rumored to be a judge on the new American Idol. False, she’s signed with The Voice.
Ryan Seacrest? Still no “official” word on him, but it’s a pretty safe bet he’ll be joining the new AMerican Idol on ABC, since he just joined ABC with Kelly anyway.
Simon Cowell, everyone’s favorite critic. Well, he’s NOT joining the new American Idol, he says he has “no interest.”
Chris Daughtry, after some new info has been released, apparently is not planning on joining the show. We’ll wait for even more info before we decide if that’s true, and the same goes for Coldplay’s Chris Martin.
Now that the official stuff is out of the way, here’s another rumor (oh no, not another one). Carrie Underwood is, according to some sources, in talks with ABC to join the new American Idol family. She’s been talking to ABC execs and Idol producers, and of course was the 2005 winner. Fitting that she would return to the show that launched her career to help other singers begin their own careers.
