Katy Perry is ready to find America’s next music sensation on the ABC reboot of ‘American Idol’!
Katy Perry released a statement about joining the reboot: “”I am honored and thrilled to be the first judge bringing back the American Idol tradition of making dreams come true for incredible talents with authentic personalities and real stories.
“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.”
She is currently the only confirmed judge for the upcoming reboot. Carrie Underwood, Chris Daughtry and Adam Lambert have also been speculated to join the panel.
