Katy Perry Is Joining 'American Idol'

May 17, 2017

It's OFFICIALLY - official!  Katy Perry is headed to American Idol. Katy revealed that she is "honored" and "thrilled" to be joining the judges table.  And she is also excited to "bring back the American Idol tradition of making dreams come true." No word yet as to when exactly the show will premiere.  All we know is to be on the lookout for more announcements and possibly an air date of Fall of 2018. 

SO thrilled @ABCNetwork is bringing back @AmericanIdol, and I’m bringing it back to the --MUSIC-- -- you at auditions❗
