Katy Perry has now scored a huge deal as she will be the lead judge on Fox’s hit show, “American Idol;” ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey made the announcement Tuesday while at the Networks Upfronts in New York.  Although Katy was not there for the big moment, she said, “Honored and thrilled to be the first judge bringing back the American Idol tradition of making dreams come true.”

She tweeted, “SO thrilled @ABCNetwork is bringing back @AmericanIdol, and I’m bringing it back to the 🎶MUSIC🎶 👁 you at auditions❗

There was not much about Idols reboot and sources believe that it is pretty certain Ryan Seacrest will be back. Such a nice move though, having Perry as one of the lead judges.

So much to look forward to this season.
