Kelly Clarkson Rumored to be a Judge on the New 'American Idol' Announces She's a Coach on 'The Voice'
Kelly Clarkson just turned things around quicker than 'The Voice' coach chairs -- instead of judging on the new "American Idol", she's joining NBC's hit singing competition.
Kelly made the announcement by video chatting with Blake Shelton on his Facebook page. The superstar singers joked they'd been trying to put the deal together for years, but Kelly kept getting pregnant.
The timing is no coincidence because, 'Idol' producers wanted Clarkson to be a judge when the show returns on ABC in March 2018. BUT sources say negotiations were underway, but fell apart when the sides couldn't agree on money.
Kelly's asking price was beyond the budget for the new 'Idol' so, "The Voice" swooped in to land her for season 14 ... which will be running at the same time Idol returns.
