Paula Abdul doesn't want to return to 'American Idol'

What do you think of Katy Perry's serious paycheque for her upcoming stint on the American Idol reboot?

Singer Katy Perry arrives at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, California, on February 12, 2017.

ABC made the announcement of the show's return during a presentation given in New York City on Tuesday (16.05.17). Her incredible accolades speak for themselves. "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".

"She also talked about a lot of things that she's never really talked about publicly before", Corden added.

The reality singing competition known as American Idol on ABC will have Katy Perry sing in a bid to revive the show with a legion of young fans.

Perry confirmed that she'd be appearing on American Idol on Twitter this week, revealing that she's "thrilled" to join the reboot. "I'm always listening to new music, and love discovering diamonds in the rough - from mentoring young artists on my label, or highlighting new artists on my tours, I want to bring it back to the music".

Perry, 32, is the first major name to come aboard the reboot of the show, which was cancelled by Fox Broadcasting past year after 15 seasons amid declining viewership ratings.

"I love being a judge on vocal talent shows".

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

"When host Ellen Degeneres - who was formerly a judge on the talent show - said "'Idol' is coming back", Katy nodded.

American Idol is produced by FremantleMedia North America and Core Media Group's 19 Entertainment. For one, Dungey reportedly mentioned having live events that he deems important for "how they drive live viewing".

Katy hasn't confirmed if she's really getting paid the seriously insane fee for heading to American Idol, though we're guessing Perry probably wasn't all that swayed by the price tag if the claims are true.
