Chris Daughtry will come home to American Idol when the show returns, only this time he’ll be sitting behind the judges table. He has signed on as the first judge for the show’s reboot that is expected to be back early next year. Although he didn’t win (fourth place in season 5), Daughtry is one of the show’s most successful artists only trailing Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood in record sales.
So who will fill the other chairs at the judges table? Both Kelly Clarkson and Katy Perry have been rumored, but for now we’ll just have to wait and see.
