Kelly Clarkson will be reuniting with the original “American Idol” judges — Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson — who are all set to appear on her new talk show.

Clarkson is launching “The Kelly Clarkson” show on September 9 and has been slowly teasing out previews of the highly-anticipated show.

PEOPLE first reported and The Blast can confirm that Cowell, Abdul and Jackson will all take the stage together with Clarkson for a sitdown.

The trio were the OG judges on season one in 2002, where Clarkson was the champion. Clarkson beat out Justin Guarini to become the first-ever winner of "American Idol"
