Katy Perry confirmed for American Idol

Katy Perry has officially signed on for the American Idol reboot - as a judge.

The I Kissed a Girl star has been coy about negotiations to join the revamped talent show for weeks, but ABC bosses confirmed the news during their 2017 Upfront Presentation in New York on Tuesday (16May17).

"I am honoured 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," Katy said in a statement. "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."

Just hours before the formal announcement was made, Katy appeared on America's The Ellen DeGeneres Show and alluded to her new role, noting during her chat with the comedienne she is "good at" providing constructive criticism.

Perry will reportedly join former Idol finalist Chris Daughtry on the new show when it returns to TV later this year (17), although his name has not yet been announced.

Another former Idol favourite, Carrie Underwood, is also in talks to become a judge on the new show, according to Variety.

The country star, who famously won the contest in 2005, is also negotiating a return as a judge after meeting with producers and ABC network executives.

Kelly Clarkson, the show's first ever winner, was previously a frontrunner to become a judge on the revamped American Idol, but she switched sides last week (ends12May17) and opted to sign on as a coach for rival show The Voice.
