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 NY on Tuesday (16May17).

On Tuesday, Perry sat down with Ellen DeGeneres and dished about her break from the spotlight and her new album that comes out on June 9.

Katy Perry has been confirmed as a judge on the 2018 revival of American Idol.

Perry said that when she was young, she was "not allowed to interact with gay people", but added: "I came out of the womb asking questions, curious from day one. We are so lucky to have this strong and talented woman help inspire and guide the next crop of artists as they pursue their dreams". Perry said she cut her hair about a month and made a decision to do it after going too blonde and having her hair fall out.

ABC is defending reviving American Idol a year after the show had its "farewell season" on Fox.

As previously reported by Us Weekly, Idol alum Chris Daughtry is also expected to return to judge.

Many other devoted followers of the show have started to stir up the possibility of Ryan Seacrest revising his role as the show's emcee.

The "American Idol" news was unveiled Wednesday by ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey.

For American Idol, the next challenge is finding two more judges to provide some unique insight of their own.

She also posted a note on Twitter saying that she was thrilled that "American Idol" is back.

She got the golden ticket!

The Santa Barbara native's big announcement came just hours after she hinted about the judging gig during a Tuesday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. She said, "SO thrilled @ABCNetwork is bringing back @AmericanIdol, and I'm bringing it back to the MUSIC see you at auditions".
