Carrie Underwood has been in talks with ABC to join the judge’s panel on the American Idol reboot, according to a report in Variety.

Meanwhile Us Weekly says that season 5 finalist Chris Daughtry will join the show, while other sources say that there’s no truth to it. A source tells the magazine that the network hopes to have a panel of all former contestants. However, it’s been rumored that Katy Perry, who never competed on Idol, will join as a judge.

Others who’ve reportedly been considered include Jennifer Hudson and season 1 champ Kelly Clarkson — who signed on with The Voice instead.
