It was an OFF season for Idol this past year. Ratings were down. Nicki didn't like Mariah. Mariah didn't like Nicki. Did I mention ratings were WAY down? So other than CANCEL THE DAMN SHOW, which a lot of people would go for, Idol producers may have one last save for the show.

Rumor is that they are thinking of bringing FORMER contestants to be the judges! LOVE THE IDEA! We don't need overpaid celeb judges anymore. They're a bunch of former winners and losers that would make great judges and keep the show fresh!

My vote is for Kelly Clarkson, the best winner ever in my estimation. Which former contestant would you bring back as a judge?
