Find Out Who Katy Perry Wants to Judge With for 'American Idol' Reboot


Katy names Lionel Richie and Charlie Puth as the musicians she wishes to be sitting on the judge panel with her for the upcoming revival of the singing competition show.
By far, Katy Perry is the only confirmed judge to be featured on the upcoming "American Idol" reboot on ABC. Now, the "Swish Swish" songstress has named several artists whom she wishes to be sitting on the judge panel with her.

While calling into "On Air With Ryan Seacrest" on Wednesday, August 23, the "Bon Appetit" singer revealed that she would love to see Lionel Richie and Charlie Puth filling in the empty judge's seats. "I'm really pulling for Lionel because I think Lionel is an icon," Katy said. "And not only that, but if you've seen or ever met Lionel, he just knows how to charm the whole room and he's such an artisan with words… I love Lionel."

As for Charlie, Katy said that his less experience in the business was his charm. "Charlie I think is an interesting play because Charlie Puth is somewhat new to the general public of America," Katy spoke of the "We Don't Talk Anymore" crooner. "Obviously he has his own big fan base, but I think he's really talented. That song 'Attention' is one of my favorite songs this year."

"He's a writer; he's a producer; he's young; he's fresh; he's cool; he's hip. He's Charlie Puth!" she continued. "He's just some fresh blood. Between Lionel and me, it would be nice to have someone a little bit even more fresh. We're a different kind of fresh."

Both Charlie and Lionel were indeed among the alleged frontrunners for the show's judge panel. However, ABC was reportedly struggling in locking down the remaining judges for the revived show, and the issue was on Lionel Richie. His team allegedly asked for around $10 million, which is a double from initial price that ABC offered.

Hosted by returning host Ryan, "American Idol" reboot will premiere sometime in early 2018 on ABC.
