Is Carrie Underwood Headed to American Idol Re-Boot?

After the rumors claiming that Kelly Clarkson was heading to ABC’s American Idol reboot proved to be false last week, a new rumor has surfaced that Carrie Underwood might be headed to the show. Variety reports that ABC and other producers have held talks with Underwood about joining the show as a judge. While no other details were revealed about Carrie’s possible return to Idol, the publication also reported that Ryan Seacrest is on track to return as the show’s host.


  • Carrie won American Idol’s fourth season in 2005.
  • Clarkson squashed rumors of her return to Idol last week when she was announced as a coach on Season 14 of NBC’s The Voice.
