Katy Perry Picks This Singer to Replace Her as 'American Idol' Judge

The 'Fireworks' hitmaker, who will leave the show after this season, notes that her replacement must be 'a truth teller,' adding, "I want someone that is not afraid to tell the truth in a graceful way.'

AceShowbiz - Katy Perry has revealed the musician she wishes to replace her on "American Idol". The "Fireworks" hitmaker, who is set to leave the singing competition show after this season, revealed that Jelly Roll would fit best as the next judge.

"I gotta say Jelly Roll was crazy when he came on the show," the 39-year-old told after the Monday, April 15 episode of the show. "I was convinced at anything he said. He could run for president, he could be my pastor, I might go back to church for him. He could sell me anything."

"So I love him," the Queen of Camp added. "And to have any of these guys plus Jelly on the show would be amazing. I love you, Jelly!"

Katy went on to note that her replacement must be "a truth teller," adding, "I want someone that is not afraid to tell the truth in a graceful way." She also suggested that the future judge needs to be someone who "doesn't read the comments" from haters online.

"Unfortunately, when you're a woman and you have an opinion or you're a boss, sometimes you're also considered a B-*-*-*-[H]," she said. "So just someone that has a strong sense of self, that listens to their intuition."

While Katy has officially confirmed her departure, fellow judge Luke Bryan has expressed his desire to scale back his commitments to spend more time with his family. With Luke contemplating exiting the show, producers are reportedly [u=/news/view/00220642.html]eyeing Jelly Roll as his potential replacement.

Jelly Roll himself has been a mentor on "American Idol". Thus, insiders believe his sweet demeanor could make him a relatable and popular judge, even if he lacks the ruthlessness necessary for critiquing contestants.
