What do you think of Katy Perry's serious paycheque for her upcoming stint on the American Idol reboot? The singer, who finished as the runner-up on the show's eighth season in 2009, told Us Weekly at the 2017 ASCAP Pop Music Awards on Thursday, May 18, that he'd be willing to join the revived judging panel. The network, which publicly had been courting the singer, made the announcement during its upfront presentation in Manhattan.

Entertainment President of ABC Channing Dungey said in a press release for the show: "We are thrilled to be ushering in this new era of "American Idol" with Katy leading the charge. She's nice, but speaks her mind", Archuleta said. "We are so lucky to have this strong and talented woman help inspire and guide the next crop of artists as they pursue their dreams". While the rest of the roster has yet to be revealed, Perry couldn't be more "thrilled" about her new gig.

Earlier this month, it was confirmed that FremantleMedia North America and 19 Entertainment, "American Idol's" producers, and ABC have finalized a deal to bring back the reality talent show. The "Chained to the Rhythm" star reiterated that she is always dedicated to "highlighting new artists on my tours".

Perry, 32, is the first major name to come aboard the reboot of the show, which was cancelled by Fox Broadcasting previous year after 15 seasons amid declining viewership ratings. Then again, celebrity judges were always there to discover new and promising talents.

We miss a lot of players, also Marcos Rojo, Ibrahimovic, Luke Shaw, Ashley Young, but it's a big challenge to win the trophy for these players.

In season 8, Fox introduced a fourth judge, Kara DioGuardi, to the panel.

In other news, "American Idol" is expected to undergo several "format changes".

Meanwhile Katy appeared on "The Ellen Degeneres Show" on Tuesday morning where she teased the return of the show, and hinted that she might be hired as a judge because she gives good "constructive criticism".

Onboard! Adam Lambert is excited for ABC's American Idol reboot.
