American Idol is coming back…whether any of us asked for this or not. There’s been rumor after rumor about who will judge the ABC reboot, and now we have one confirmed. It’s a big one too! Katy Perry announced in a statement yesterday she’s joining the panel.
“I am honored and thrilled to be the first judge bringing back the American Idol tradition of making dreams come true for incredible talents with authentic personalities and real stories,” she said. “I’m always listening to new music, and love discovering diamonds in the rough—from mentoring young artists on my label, or highlighting new artists on my tours, I want to bring it back to the music.”
Perry is a good choice, will her fame beat The Voice in ratings? I’m not so sure. There’s a good chance they’ll ask a country star. If so, who would you like to see?
