Katy Perry Officially Joins ‘American Idol’ Reboot As Judge

Katy Perry is officially named as the first judge for the ‘American Idol’ reboot.

An ABC executive said yesterday that Perry’s signing was consistent with the network’s philosophy that, “What you can’t do is come back as bargain-basement Idol.”

He went on to say that the network is going to make sure “the talent is right” and it’ll do what it has to do to make the singing competition “bigger and better than ever.”

Next up is whether ABC can lockdown Ryan Seacrest to return as host.
