Rumors, speculation, chatter. There has been a lot of that surrounding the revival of American Idol, and the first surprise to many was the fact that Kelly Clarkson would not judge on Idol, but in fact join the reality singing shows competition The Voice. Well, whatever the case may be on what NBC really had in mind when snatching the first season Idol winner, ABC welcomes Katy Perry as the first official judge on American Idol.
They need strong players, and Katy is indeed one that can help make the new Idol a success. The new season starts in 2018.
