American Idol: Katy Perry In Talks To Join As A Judge

Published: Sunday 14th May 2017 by Sam

Katy Perry is reportedly in advanced talks to join the revived ‘American Idol.’

According to TMZ, the ‘Bon Appétit’ belter is “very interested” in a judging role on ABC‘s incarnation of the singing show. So much so that she’s said to be willing to map out her upcoming tour around Idol’s taping schedule.

The only (major) detail being hashed out presently is money.

Although, with ABC losing out to NBC‘s no holds barred approach to snagging talent they were interested in (see: both Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson joining ‘The Voice’), Perry appears to be in a great position at the negotiation table.


This actually makes an abundance of sense.

For Katy, Idol – regardless of the naysayers – will command an audience sizeable enough to be beneficial to her career. It’ll also line her pockets handsomely at a time when it’s uncertain what the returns would be from her music and touring efforts (see: current underperformance).

Meanwhile, for the show, Perry lends a heightened degree of star-power right out of the gate.

    I don’t want any of it!! Idol needs to stay gone, and Katy can go on tour to save this era(or just go on tour?! 🤷🏽‍♂️)

  2. Ughhhh May 14, 2017

    Don’t do it gurl. Judge shows are dying. They only work in other countries like Europe and Australia.

    I think Mary J Blige would be a better fit

      Mary J yes would be a better fit…being as though she is the Queen of Hip Hop Soul…Perry is racist white b**** who get American idol money because she expressed calling ppl n******….and the contestants have to sing for a racist b**** who hate them already. .TV 24\7 has white racist b**** programming….

    The blacks asked her to stop calling them n.word..but Perry refused leaving them the thought of busting her in the mouth…..but they remained professional to get paid for their work.

    She shouldn’t do this. Her career is fine. So what her latest single didn’t become a hit right away. Y’all are foolish. Everything won’t be a hit. She has a big fan base. As soon as she scores a hit, Sam will be switching stories. This site is washed up now.

      I respectfully disagree with you on this one. Katy Perry doesn´t seem to have a big fan base. And then era is suddenly showing it. Lady Gaga and a few others, no matter what and agaisnt all odds, proved they have a faithful fan base they have earned with talent despite losing the more superficial pop fans depending on the eras. Katy Perry doesn´t look like that type of artist. But we´ll see.

        She already had a semi hit with her first single. It just didn’t have longevity. Her second single didn’t do too good. Aight cool. Keep it moving. Again, every song, even if it’s great, will not be a hit. If she is strategic, perhaps she can kind of salvage this era. How can you distinguish wether or not her fan base is large through a single or two?

    Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse than JLO

    So they want a non-singer to judge a singing competition!? Well, at least it’s not The Voice.

    Idol’s format is boring and basic. Only old ladies and housewives stayed behind and watched the final seasons that’s why the last couple of winners were boring white men.
