A rep for Kelly Clarkson told the Hollywood Reporter that the singer will not be a judge on season 13 of American Idol , but it appears that Jennifer Hudson may take the job.

E! Online claims that multiple sources have confirmed that Jennifer has signed a deal to judge the Fox show for season 13.  E! reiterates reports that either Adam Lambert or Clay Aiken are also being considered for a spot, and claims that despite her rep's denials, Kelly is also close to signing on.

Jennifer appeared on the season 12 finale earlier this month, duetting with Candice Glover.   She's returned to the show multiple times since she was came in seventh in season three, then went on to an Oscar- and Grammy-winning career. 

Fox has so far had no comment on the reports that American Idol alums are being tapped to be judges on the show.  In addition, a rep for J-Hud tells ABC News Radio, "We have no comment at this time."
