“American Idol” Finally Has A Full Judge Line-Up

September 29, 2017 / Posted by:

It appears Lionel Richie will complete the new American Idol triumvirate with Katy Perry and Luke Bryan, and it’s not soon enough! As in, filming starts Tuesday. Seriously, it was beginning to feel like it’d be easier to get Donald Trump to throw Hillary Clinton onto the Supreme Court judging panel than it was to find any music act to go on American Idol.

TMZ says Lionel is getting about $10 million to listen to pitchy blondes from Nebraska try and make it as a STAH! Luke is getting around $13 million. Ryan Seacrest is going to have $10-15 million to spend on blonde highlights. And we all know producers are breathing into a brown paper bag over spending $25 million on the Witness chanteuse. When Idol went off the air all of five minutes ago, one of the biggest gripes was how expensive it was to lure acts like Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey on the panel (“When I’m having a judging moment, it doesn’t come cheap, Daaaaaahling.” –Mariah). So ABC is doing a GREAT job at keeping things cheap and chintzy this time around!

The line-up could be announced as early as today, but a source close to production said it could get held up if lawyers start nitpicking details. Hmmm maybe details like how in FUCK is the man behind “We Are The World” and hump hit “Endless Love” worth $15 million less than the chick behind Kitty Purry??
