Former American Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson is proud of the fact that she has become so successful off the back of the show and still has a fondness for the show. Jennifer has now claimed that American Idol should know when to give up and quit while they are ahead.
However, it may already be too late and American Idol could be set to go on for one season too many. Despite the fact that the new season of American Idol received some positive reviews, especially Nicki Minaj, the show actually experienced some rather low ratings.
Hudson explained, "Everything has its time. I think it should just allow itself to go out on top… and gracefully. American Idol changed the face of television. So, not everyone can say that. And, it’s always been a phenomenon. I’m proud to have come from American Idol, so I just say, go out on top."
American Idol now has competition from a number of other shows with a similar format, such as The X Factor and The Voice. American Idol is currently in its twelfth season, which continues this week, with an episode on Wednesday and another on Thursday.
