Chris Daughtry Joins ‘American Idol’ Reboot as Judge

We learned earlier that Katy Perry is very close to becoming an anchor judge on the reboot of ‘American Idol’ (CLICK HERE for the story), but now it looks like Chris Daughtry has officially taken a judging role as well.


According to US Weekly:

His time on American Idol is not over! Former contestant Chris Daughtry is joining the show’s ABC revival as a judge, a source confirms to Us Weekly.

“They wanted a panel of all ex contestants,” says a second source. “Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Hudson were all on their wish list.”

The “It’s Not Over” singer, 37, is one of the biggest stars to come out of American Idol, and has sold the third most records behind Clarkson and Underwood. Daughtry competed on the show’s fifth season in 2006, and finished in fourth place. Taylor Hicks was named the winner that season, with Katharine McPhee as the runner-up.

The other judges have not yet been announced, but there are rumors that Katy Perry will take one of the seats. TMZ also reported that ABC and production companies FremantleMedia and Core Media Group want Ryan Seacrest — who was recently announced as Kelly Ripa’s new Live cohost — to return as the American Idol host.
