Katy Perry Opens Up About Being an 'Honest' Judge on the New 'American Idol'

Katy Perry Opens Up About Being an 'Honest' Judge on the New 'American Idol'

Katy Perry covers the March 2018 issue of Glamour magazine, talking all about the new American Idol.

As the only female judge on the panel, with Lionel Richie and country singer Luke Bryan, Katy dished about trying to be honest with everyone who comes to audition, while also recognizing the double standard of it all.

“People also come in with their stories,” she says. “Before they even sing one note, they’ll say something like, ‘I’m homeless,’ and that will impact the way you perceive them.”

Katy continues, “But if they really can’t sing, the personal story has to come second. I hope that I don’t get turned into ‘the b****’ because of that, but I also know that the music industry does not need just another singer.”

She knows that the double standard is there for her too, because she is the only female judge.

“I was saying the other day that Simon Cowell was my favorite judge because he’s very straight-to-the-point,” Katy shared. “Most people who are at home watching American Idol–you know eating food and going about their lives–are thinking either, This [person] can sing, or, This person can’t. And Simon was that kind of judge.”

She adds, “Simon could be mean, because he’s an executive and a man. But you reverse the role, and all of a sudden you’re a b****.”

American Idol will premiere on ABC in March.

Katy Perry shines in silver at the Disney ABC Television Group Hosts TCA Winter Press Tour 2018 party on Monday night (January 8) in Pasadena, Calif.

The singer hit up the American Idol panel with fellow judges Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie, as well as host Ryan Seacrest to chat about the rebooted reality program.

Here’s everything you need to know about it:

What days will it air?

American Idol will return on March 11, airing both Sunday and Monday — up until the all-athletes season of DWTS premieres on April 30th. It will go down to just one day then — Sunday. The two-night finale will air on May 20th and 21st.

No more bad auditions

Showrunner Trish Kinane shared that the new ABC version will nix all bad auditions.

“It doesn’t feel comfortable to put borderline unstable people up on stage and laugh at them,” she shares. “I think that people once thought that the judges saw everyone, and now you know there’s a line of producers who screen before them…We want the humor, but we don’t want the exploitation.”

Seeking a star:

Katy is passionate about finding a star from the program: “Literally, we are wasting our time if we do not find a star. You know, America doesn’t need another star. They need, like, a real legit American Idol.”

She adds, “It’s a crowded place, and I take it really seriously, sometimes to my detriment. But I’m very cut-and-dry and get straight to the point, but I think that is our purpose.”
