“The Voice” and “American Idol” Are Now More Than Just Singing Competitions

Now that American Idol is coming back, there is a new competition brewing: who will be the judges? #AmericanIdol #TheVoice

In case you haven’t heard, ABC is reviving the singing competition reality show this year for a 2017-2018 season. Fox officially ended Idol’s 15-season run in 2016.

Shortly after the revival news was announced, fans began wondering who the new judges might be and one major name in the mix was original American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson. Unfortunately for American Idol, Clarkson announced yesterday that she’s joining season 14 of The Voice as a new coach.

So where does that leave the American Idol revival now? Simon Cowell has said he will not re-join Idol. Watch the E! News clip for the scoop on American Idol’s return to TV!
