According to inside sources, Katy Perry has landed a massive deal to be the lead judge on the upcoming ‘American Idol’ reboot. Apparently, ABC was desperate to sign a judge before they announced the return of the show. Sources say, “Katy had all the leverage.”
That leverage paid off, because Perry managed to get $25 million out of the deal, $5 more than their first offer, which she rejected a while back.
Katy is doing alright for herself, seeing as Ryan Seacrest only made $15 million a season. Speaking of Seacrest, the sources also say he might return as host, but only time will tell.
