YAS The OG winner of American Idol is coming to judge on during the farewell season. Clarkson, who is pregnant with her second child, will not only judge during the first live top 10 show but she will also perform according to executive producer Trish Kinane. “We’ve invited her to be part of this season and she’s really happy to be,” Kinane shared. “She will be a guest judge on our first live top 10 show and she’ll also perform.”

The producers are looking to bring back a ton of winners and fan favorites. “We’re talking to everybody who’s made a huge contribution to the show, and we’d love to have them come back,” Kinane added. Hopefully Simon Cowell, along wil Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson will make it back too. “I appreciate Simon’s part in the history of the show and [it’s] a very important part,” Kinane said. “I think the most we can expect is for Simon to be at the finale.”
