Here’s some fun news. Former American Idol judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson will be reuniting with OG Idol winner Kelly Clarkson, on her upcoming afternoon talk show.
“We just talked about that earlier. With Paula and Randy. Yeah, the three of us,” Simon told reporters at the America’s Got Talent taping on Tuesday (Aug 21), according to Us Weekly.
“Could be the three of us,” he said. “The last time I saw Kelly, she came when I got that star last year. Yeah … that meant a lot to me, you know, because, you know, she and I started the show.”
The Kelly Clarkson Show is set to debut on September 9 on mostly NBC stations.
During his talk with reporters, Simon praised The Voice coach, admiring the success she’s achieved since winning the show in 2002.
“Just seeing how she’s done as an artist and now how she’s progressed on TV, not everyone’s like this by the way,” Simon said of Kelly.
“She is the most loyal, nice person, I mean genuinely, she is how she is off-camera as she is on-camera.” Simon added, “She doesn’t need to be told what to do, she knows exactly what she’s doing. And she’s a great person. She’s real, sweet, funny, a great girl. We’re lucky we found Kelly on the first season of Idol. I don’t think I would be standing here today.”
