Ryan Seacrest Confirms All Former American Idol Judges Will Reunite For Final Season (Yes, Even Nicki and Mariah)
"I've spoken to all of them recently and talked to them about coming back to do something for the final season," Seacrest told Access Hollywood.
“I’ve spoken to all of them recently and we as a team have talked to them about coming back to do something for the final season,” Seacrest, 40, told Access Hollywood on Thursday.
“They are going to do it, it’s just a matter of figuring what to do with them.”
In May, it was announced that Fox cancelled American Idol after failing to stay at the top of ratings for several years. The 15th season will bow with current judges Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban.
Seacrest has been Idol‘s staple since the singing competition premiered in 2002 with original judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson – all of whom were together for eight seasons.
Idol returns to Fox on Jan. 6.
