Kelly Clarkson joining 'The Voice' as coach for 14th season

FremantleMedia, the producer of the hit show, came to an agreement with ABC to bring "American Idol" back on the television screen. It's your move, ABC. "Should "Idol" happen, she feels Ryan Seacrest is the heart and soul of "American Idol" and therefore she's 100 per cent on board". ("Idol" was primarily filmed in Los Angeles.) But when asked by co-host Kelly Ripa - an "Idol" superfan - he sounded uncertain of his ability to juggle his new duties as well as his morning radio show with "Idol". The deal with "The Voice" scuttles any possible return to "Idol" for Clarkson, who was the victor of the talent competition's first season in 2002 and appeared as a guest judge during the show's 15th and final season on Fox.

Kelly Clarkson's team are reportedly already clearing her schedule for the time the show will be taped. The network has not released any details about the judges or host at this time. Many thought that if she'd be a judge anywhere, it'd be the show that gave her a career.

"She's like, the flawless person to judge on a show like that", Connick Jr. explained.

Facebook might launch its own premium TV shows next month
These new shows will presumably also be viewable through Facebook's video app for the Apple TV and other set-top boxes. While it seems Facebook's original programming plan is in full gear, there is still a spate of questions that loom.

"I love that show", he said in the video segment above.

According to editors at TMZ, ABC has expressed "serious interest" in signing Clarkson as a judge. But Pink and Kelly have different personalities.

The X Factor US may have lasted only three seasons, but one of the best judges that show had was Demi Lovato. To the public, she has cultivated a persona of warmth and effervescence. Plus, Demi got her start with Disney - does ABC want to choose someone who has connections to the parent company or the network? Who else should be considered? Let us know in the comments why you think she chose the British series instead of Idol. Want more news? Like our American Idol Facebook page. While neither camp ever mentioned coming together in flawless harmony for the reality singing competition's reboot, Kelly was the first official victor of American Idol; it would have been somewhat poetic and full-circle to have her return.
