"American Idol" announced a new addition to the judging table for Season 13.

E! News has confirmed that former Season 3 winner Jennifer Hudson has officially agreed to a deal with the Fox network show, and other previous title-holders may on the way.

It's rumored that "Idol" alumni Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert are close to signing deals with the show, but no official agreement has been made.

With ratings on a rapid downward spiral -- 7 million less viewers from the previous season -- it's no surprise Fox is attempting to regain public acceptance.

Can you blame them?
