Remember When American Idol Ended 3 Seconds Ago? It Might Come Back On NBC…

Does Ryan Seacrest need the work that badly?

We thought we'd seen the last of American Idol after FOX canceled the OG primetime singing competition last year.

But not even a year later, NBC is already talks to revive the hit series!

According to Variety, the peacock network has been pitched a new and improved version of the singing comp by producer Fremantle and is deciding how to integrate Idol to its programming — which already features two of the highest rated singing competitions on air.

Insiders say one benefit of rebooting Idol would be cutting The Voice from two cycles a year to just one — giving audiences a break from Adam Levine and Blake Shelton's banter, which would prolong the show's life in the long run.

Even though Idol's viewership declined in its later years, no one can deny the ratings powerhouse it was for well over a decade — not to mention, giving us actual stars like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and Jennifer Hudson.

NBC is keeping things hush for now, but we have a feeling we Idol will be making sweet music again sooner than later.

What a nightmare!

Let's journey back to the 2006 Grammys… it was a HUGE night for Kelly Clarkson as she became the first American Idol contestant to win not one, but TWO awards for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for Since U Been Gone and Best Pop Vocal Album for Breakaway.

The then-23-year-old also took the stage that night to perform her classic ballad Because Of You.

As if the tensions weren't high enough, this was all going on the very same day doctors mistakenly diagnosed the songstress with cancer.

Casper Smart knows how to worm his way back into Jennifer Lopez's life!

Earlier this week, J.Lo hit up a Cuban restaurant and nightclub, named El Floridita, for a friend's birthday party in Hollywood. However, the hitmaker's ex was also in attendance as he too was invited to the outing. Hmmm, go on!

As you may recall, Lopez called it quits (for the 1,000th time) on her romance with Smart back in August. Although, it sounds like there isn't any bad blood between the former flames since Jennifer, along with bestie Leah Remini, was seen happily chatting with the dancer.

One source even claimed the 47-year-old looked "happy" to be chatting with the Dirty Dancing star. Huh.

Clearly the run-in didn't ruin Jenny's night as she took to Instagram and shared:
