Official: Katy Perry Joins ‘American Idol’ As A Judge

Published: Tuesday 16th May 2017 by Sam

After ample speculation, it is official – Katy Perry has signed on a judge on the revived ‘American Idol.’

Confirmation came moments ago at the ABC Upfronts, whereby the network outlined their plans for the 2017/2018 television season.

The acquisition of Perry’s services will stand as quite the coup for ABC who secured the rights to air the new incarnation of the talent show after a fierce bidding war with its original network FOX as well as NBC.

It marks the latest in a string of announcements pertaining to Perry, who this week alone has unveiled 4th album ‘Witness’ and an accompanying tour.

Do you think ‘Idol’ is a wise move on her part? Let us know below…

      Personally I would’ve love to have have seen Kelly Rowland. She makes a great judge.

      Katy’s star is not SHINING BRIGHT this go around. subpar material, corny videos. KATY has thrown shade at Taylor Swift, MARIAH carey, Britney spears which has turned there fan bases against her. She’s dumb AF. Your reap what your big mouth sows.

    Katy Perry judging singers says enough about how much of a flop this will be.

    Kudos to he a smart woman. This is a platform that people can see her personality and redeem herself from all the controversy.

    Think this will be a good move for both her and American Idol BUT the real issue is these shows more about the celebs on panel than the eventual winners now.
