Jennifer Hudson or Kelly Clarkson: Who Should Judge American Idol Season 13?

Originally posted 05/31/2013 10:20AM

Will Keith Urban remain the last judge standing on American Idol? Or will Fox replace its entire lineup for an all-new panel of judges? What exactly will happen next season?

Until Urban's fate is announced, speculation persists on who will replace Randy Jackson, who announced his departure after 12 seasons on the show, as well as the latest stars to exit, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj.

After fun and dramatic seasons with the likes of Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Paula Abdul and the ever-so blunt Simon Cowell, the possibilities are endless about which star could energize Idol as the show competes with a growing number of singing contests, including NBC's The Voice, amid criticism and falling ratings.

Jennifer Hudson Returns to American Idol

One of the biggest stars to grace the stage at the American Idol finale on Thursday night was the talent competition's own Jennifer Hudson.

The Oscar- and Grammy-winning performer – looking super slim in a black top and black jeans – took the stage to sing "Inseparable" with finalist Candice Glover.

Though Hudson, who was shockingly eliminated from the top seven of season 3, belted out high note after glorious high note, she let Candice, 23, have her a moment in the spotlight at the end of the song when she stood back and said, "Sing it, Candice."

And sing it she did! Candice held her own, hitting the final notes of the Natalie Cole song.

Watch your back, Jennifer Aniston.

The Wanderulst star, 44, made quite the fashion statement at Monday's premiere of Call Me Crazy, a Lifetime film about mental illness.

Wearing a simple black romper with her hair tied back in a ponytail, the actress revealed a pattern of circular marks on her back – probably the result of cupping, a Chinese form of alternative medicine designed to promote circulation.
