Will the “Bon Appetit” singer be serving her dishes at the judges table?
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Katy Perry is pretty interested to join the judging panel on the revival of “American Idol”. Word on the street has it that she’s currently in advanced talks with ABC.
The only issue on the table is apparently her salary. Seeing as how NBC were successful in recruiting both Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson for “The Voice”, Perry seems to have the upper hand at the negotiation table. Since the pop singer’s pay cheque won’t come cheap, the other 2 judges probably won’t be huge stars.
This wouldn’t be Perry’s first time as a judge on a talent show. She was previously a guest judge on “The X-Factor” U.K., and “American Idol”. 2017 is already shaping up to be busy year for this music superstar. Judging from her under-performing singles, this might just be the move to propel her star-power right now.
What say you, Katycats? Should Perry accept the offer? If the negotiations is successful, the 32-year-old will likely be accompanied by host Ryan Seacrest, who is expected to reprise his old gig, when the new “American Idol” is launched early 2018.
In the meantime, fans can check out a new snippet of her song, “Witness”. Parts of the track was leaked over a year ago. “Can I get a witness/ Will you be my witness/ I’m just looking for a witness in all of this/ Looking for a witness to get me through this,” Perry sings over ’90s-influenced dance beats.
