The rumours have been going around for days, but it’s been officially confirmed – Katy Perry will be a judge on the reinstated, American Idol.
Confirming the news on Twitter, Perry posted this promotional picture…
Back before she shaved it all off…how does this woman pull anything off?!?
It’s also been spread over the last few days that Idol producers originally wanted season one winner, Kelly Clarkson, to be a judge – let’s be honest, Perry isn’t a half bad second choice!
While this will be great for the show to help pull in views as well as offering another platform to Perry to plug her upcoming album, Witness, it may actually harm her career in the long run.
Think off all the judges on singing competitions, Gwen Stefani, Christina Aguilera, Britney, J.Lo, all of these go on there to help revive their careers, only Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato (that I can remember) have gone on their at peak times in their career and managed to survive.
Hopefully, Perry can pull it out the bag and put recent underperformers and controversies into distant memory.
Let’s go back to classic Perry, check out “I Kissed A Girl” below. Let us know in the comments what you think of Perry joining the American Idol panel.
