Simon Cowell Teases ‘Idol’ Reunion on Kelly Clarkson’s Talk Show

Is an <a href="">American Idol</a> reunion around the corner? <a href="">Simon Cowell</a> revealed that the show’s original judges have discussed <a href="">the possibility of coming back together</a> for <a href="">Kelly Clarkson</a>’s upcoming talk show. <a href=""> ‘American Idol’ Winners Through the Years </a> “We just talked about that earlier. With <a href="">Paula [Abdul]</a> and <a href="">Randy [Jackson]</a>. Yeah, the three of us,” Cowell, 59, told Us Weekly and other reporters at the <a href="">America’s Got Talent</a> live show red carpet on Tuesday, August 20. “Could be the three of us. 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.” American Idol first premiered on Fox in 2002 with Cowell, Abdul, 57, and Jackson, 63, <a href="">as the original judges</a>. The “Love So Soft” singer, whose talk show is expected to debut on September 9, shot to instant pop stardom after winning season 1 of the show. <a href=""> Costars Reunited! </a> Cowell’s son Eric, 5, and Clarkson’s kids River, 5, and Remington, 3, “haven’t met yet,” but he will bring Eric “down to the show when I do it.” He also praised the Grammy winner for how far she has come since appearing on American Idol. “Just seeing how she’s done as an artist. … Now how she’s progressed on TV — and not everyone’s like this, by the way,” he said of Clarkson on Tuesday. “I mean, she is the most loyal, nice person, I mean genuinely. You know, who she is on camera is who she is off-camera. But what’s great about Kelly is she’s always made her own decisions. She doesn’t need to be told what to do. She knows exactly what she’s doing. She’s a great person.” <a href=""> Stars Who Got Their Start on Reality TV </a> The reality competition series aired for 15 seasons before wrapping in 2016 with <a href="">Jennifer Lopez</a>, <a href="">Keith Urban</a>, and <a href="">Harry Connick, Jr.</a> as the A-list judging panel. However, it was revived on ABC in 2018 with <a href="">Ryan Seacrest</a> returning to host and <a href="">Katy Perry</a>, <a href="">Luke Bryan</a> and <a href="">Lionel Richie</a> at the judge’s table. Cowell, who also served as a judge on The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent, exited American Idol in 2010. He joined America’s Got Talent, which he created in 2006, as <a href="">Howard Stern</a>’s replacement in 2016. Earlier this month, Cowell was asked about <a href="">rumors regarding Seacrest’s departure from the Idol franchise</a> at the America’s Got Talent live show red carpet. To this, he told Us and other reporters: “I have no idea. I haven’t seen the show in so many years, I honestly couldn’t tell you.” With reporting by Taylor Ferber
