Jennifer Hudson, Bruno Mars Possible Candidates For ‘American Idol’ Judge Panel


American Idol continues to be a revolving door for celebrities. Bruno Mars and Jennifer Hudson may be forerunners to become judges for the next season of the singing competition. The search is on for new judges, as Kelly Clarkson, Adam Lambert, Clay Aiken and Harry Connick Jr. have reportedly been considered in the AI board meetings.

But now J-Hud and the “Locked Out Of Heaven” singer’s names have been added to the voting process as well. A source told Hollywood Life, “Producers and FOX would absolutely love to get Bruno Mars as a judge. [Producers] are looking into making him an offer very soon. They’re looking to lock down next seasons’ judging panel sooner than later.”

Looks like Season 13 of the singing competition is preparing to get a facelift.
