Confirmed – Katy Perry Added To The Judges Panel On American Idol!

Katy Perry will be a judge on American Idol when it returns to TV. She confirmed the news via Instagram, hours after her episode of Ellen aired yesterday, where she wouldn’t confirm it. (But we all knew it was likely)

In a statement, Katy said, “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.” There’s no word yet on a premiere date, but far Katy Perry and Daughtry are confirmed to host the show. No confirmation on host either (although let’s face it — it’s gotta be Ryan Seacrest.)
