Katy Perry Reportedly Rejects $20 Million American Idol Judge Offer


By Daniel Gates


It seems almost inevitable that Katy Perry would be linked to an “American Idol” offer.

The singer has reportedly rejected a $20 million offer to judge the hit talent competition, according to TMZ.

The site claims Perry’s decision was a matter of scheduling and other considerations, not money.

Negotiations between FOX and Perry have not been confirmed, but it looks like the “Part of Me” star will not be taking a spot on the “Idol” panel.

In recent weeks, the list of rumored potential replacements for departed judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler has grown long, with only Mariah Carey officially signed to join.

Nick Jonas has said he’s being considered, Nicki Minaj is reportedly close to a deal, and Keith Urban has newly emerged as a serious contender.

It remains to be seen how it will all shake out for the upcoming twelfth season.

Stay tuned.
