The American Idol experience sure worked out well for Jennifer Hudson, but now the Oscar and Grammy-winning singer says that after 12 seasons, it's about time for the show to hang up its microphone.
Speaking to the website Celebuzz, J-Hud says, "I think it should just allow itself to go out on top… and gracefully." While she stresses that she's "proud" to have been a product of the show, she reiterates, "I just say, go out on top."
It's no secret that American Idol has struggled with decreasing ratings over the last few years, despite a rotating cast of judges that currently includes Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban.
"American Idol changed the face of television," Jennifer tells Celebuzz. "Not everyone can say that. And, it’s always been a phenomenon." Still, she adds, "Everything has its time."
