Carrie Underwood is up for an American Idol reunion — but only if she can get the show’s original judges together.

The 36-year-old won the hit TV talent show back in 2005, and has enjoyed a hugely successful country music career. And speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the singer was asked what it would take for her to get involved in a reunion 14 years later.

“An Idol reunion? I see all of those judges,” the Cry Pretty singer said, addressing the original judging line-up of Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson. “As long as they don’t judge me. I’m down if nobody critiques anything.”

The star went on to confess she’d “never seen them together” since her victory on the show but added it was “pretty incredible” that fellow Idol winner Kelly Clarkson recently brought the trio together for her daytime talk show.

American Idol aired its final season on the Fox network in 2016, before enjoying a revival on ABC in 2018, with Lionel Ritchie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan serving as judges.
