Katy Perry Rejects American Idol

by at . Comments

With seemingly every artist having been connected to the open American Idol Season 12 judging spots over the last couple weeks, we can cross one name off the list:

Katy Perry.

Sources tell TMZ the singer turned down an offer from the Fox competition this week. A $20 million offer, that is.

Why would Perry reject such a massive payday? Insiders cite her busy schedule and also her belief that it simply wouldn't have been the proper career decision.

So, who does this leave as a possible partner for Mariah Carey? Who doesn't it leave?!?

Everyone from Lenny Kravitz to Keith Urban to Kanye West to Nicki Minaj have been considered for the gig, with the latter rapper seemingly on the verge of signing a deal.

what I've been thinking/wishing for that for the third judge /American Idol would have past idols as the judge, not just the winners but all the favorites, even if they would switch people during the season, that would be great and not boring. What do u think of that?. That way they could make some $$$ yet American Idol would still save $$$ not having a permanent "famous" celebrity such as M. Carey. I think A I should pay me for the idea. apologies if ever mentioned before.

@honeybadger - oh, unlike American Idol?
talk about a tired show format. Good for Katy, showing some class, unlike all the other worn out has beens that jump at this kind of cash to do absolutely nothing new or fresh on that show.

At lease their considering more talent judges than they had before, the last pair of judges Jlo & Steve according to News Corp, headquarters for Fox Entertainment broadcast stated that season 11 was the worst Idol in the history of the show, and they need to replace Jlo & Steve immediately before more damages occurred to the show.

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

Paula Abdul [after Brooke White was eliminated on season seven]

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
