Katy Perry To Return As Judge for Season 4 of ABC’s ‘American Idol’

Published: Wednesday 19th Aug 2020 by Rashad

ABC has announced ‘Chained to the Rhythm’ chanteuse Katy Perry will be linked to its top-rated, rebooted ‘American Idol’ for yet another season.

More inside:

Amid pregnancy with her first child and word of a Vegas residency looming, rumors swirled the GRAMMY nominee was set to depart the reality singing competition as its resident female judge.

On Wednesday (August 19), that notion was dispelled when she took to Twitter (as seen above) to confirm her return.

“’American Idol’ has always been able to bring people together, entertain and inspire – and I am so proud of how this show continued to deliver joy and laughter into people’s homes during a time when we needed it the most,” said Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment, in a press release obtained by Fox News. “There is no one who we feel more confident about leading us into a new season of high notes than Luke, Katy, Lionel and the incomparable Ryan Seacrest.”

Echoing Burke’s sentiment, Trish Kinane – the show’s executive producer – stated:

“Katy, Lionel, and Luke are fun, astute and really know how to spot talent. Their chemistry is undeniable, and we are delighted that they, along with host Ryan Seacrest, are returning to find the next superstar and take ‘American Idol’ to new heights next season.”

Due to the ongoing global health crisis, ‘Idol’ has been holding virtual auditions since August 10 for its forthcoming fourth season.  Click here to see when they’re coming to your region.

    Just honestly curious because I don’t follow these singing shows, but what winners have come from this show since it has returned that are on the charts, as well as The Voice?

    She’s just continuing to ruin her career. Also, how are they moving to another season and the winners from the first 3 seasons haven’t even released anything? Flop.

      What do you want her to do? Not do anything at home? At least she has better career and wealth than your fave Whomani
