Kelly Clarkson has slammed off reports that she will join the judging panel of the American Idol.
The first-ever American Idol winner was asked if she would consider becoming an American Idol judge by Extra this week.
“I don’t like the judging part of it. That’s what I liked about Duets,” Clarkson explained. “I got to actually mentor them and it was more fun. I don’t think I’d be honest. I think I’d get home and be like, ‘Did you see that, boy? He was bad!’ I don’t think I’d say that on TV because people would hate me!”
However, Clarkson did praise American Idol’s signing of Mariah Carey for a reported $17 million to judge the next season.
She said, “I’m kind of super-proud that I’m from the show and Mariah Carey’s going to be on it. Just because I’m a huge fan of hers.”
American Idol returns to Fox in 2013, with open auditions currently underway across the US.
