If you still watch American Idol that is…
It was unclear whether ABC and “American Idol” could afford to bring back their three judges: Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan. Looks like they worked everything out. They announced that they’ll ALL be back for their third season together.
There’s no word on the terms of their deals. As you may recall, Katy’s original contract paid her $25 million per season.
However, the return of Ryan Seacrest still remains unknown. An ABC exec said, quote, “I don’t believe he’ll be missing. We’re in ongoing conversations with Ryan about returning, and I’m hopeful that he will.” This will be the show’s 18th season overall.
Let’s just hope like the old days, the winner will make it big!
