ABC couldn’t get Kelly Clarkson or Jennifer Hudson for their “American Idol” reboot but they apparently still want to fill at least one judges’ chair with a former contestant.  According to "Variety" Carrie Underwood has been in talks about possibly joining the show.  American Idol is set to return on ABC next year.
