‘American Idol’: Katy Perry To Pocket $15 Million

Published: Thursday 18th May 2017 by David

Katy Perry is to bag between 10 and 15 million dollars for her forthcoming run on ‘American Idol.’

On a mission to rescue her ‘Witness’ era from the racism scandal she faces, the vocalist is set to collect the meaty amount from producers who are keen to revamp the series on a ratings front.

‘Vanity Fair‘ reports:

ABC raised the 15-year franchise from the dead well before it was cold in its Fox grave, causing consternation both within the network and outside of it—especially after two of Idol’s most starry alumni, Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson, pointedly signed on to serve as judges on the next season of NBC’s The Voice instead of the undead series that made them famous. Clearly, Idol could use a big name both to shore up its judging panel and justify its quick return—and according to Entertainment WeeklyIdol had actually tried for years to sign Perry.

The publication adds…

Now that it finally has her, the network is allegedly offering her somewhere between $10 to $15 million.

Do you think she deserves that much?

    Then they wonder why they don’t have enough money when live shows come around, they blame it on ratings being low..y’all put all of this money into judges who can’t even hold a solid note without sounding like a cat in heat.

    I’m shocked they paid her that much. Maybe it’s just that I don’t listen to her music but Katy it’s doesn’t do it for me and it’s surprising to think that she could even pull in those numbers…it’ll be cancelled after one season

    She’s a big name, she’s funny and she’s a bonafied pop act.., in this day and age, esp’ considering the overall quality of ‘singer’ in the charts, it makes more sense that a Nicki or a Katy be a judge than a Celine or a Mariah.

    Waste of money. Give an unknown like me $1million, and I’ll be a bigger draw than Katy.

    It must be nice to have no talent and still get rewarded.

    Those casting shows are the new Las Vegas. You get some serious money, but you know that your musical mainstream career is over. Whatever, get the coins, girl
