The list of rumored judges for the 2018 American Idol reboot on ABC includes everyone from Keith Urban to Charlie Puth, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie. But if it were up to confirmed judge Katy Perry, it would be Richie taking the next judge seat.
Perry revealed this and other Idol deets during an interview on Wednesday (Aug. 23) with Ryan Seacrest's morning radio show, "On Air with Ryan Seacrest."
"I’m really pulling for Lionel, because I think Lionel is an icon," the Witness singer said of the "All Night Long" singer currently co-headlining a tour with Mariah Carey. "And not only that, if you’ve ever seen or met Lionel, he just knows how to charm the whole room, and he’s such an artisan with words. His whole presences just brightens the whole room."
