TMZ is reporting that Katy Perry is in final talks to the take over one of the judge spots on the new ‘American Idol’ that we’ve all been talking about.
Reportedly, Kelly Clarkson was one of the top picks, but when she made the move to ‘The Voice’ Katy Perry entered the conversation as a possibility.
Rumor has it the other two judges will likely be a songwriter and a music producer. (Dear God, please do not select Dr. Luke).
Katy Perry is quirky as can be. She will likely fill the roll of the unpredictable Paula Abdul type. She’ll probably have really great advice, but also will bring the weird. This is a good move for her.
The ABC upfronts are tomorrow, so we can likely expect the announcement that Ryan Seacrest will be named as host as well.
