Kim Kardashian is reportedly joining American Idol.
The rumors swirling around the American Idol reboot this year are wild. All we know for sure is that Katy Perry is a judge. However, that might change. Word on the street is that production delays may conflict with the pop star’s upcoming Witness Tour and force her to drop out (and lose out on that $25 million paycheck). That’d give the show a lot of wiggle room to secure Kim Kardashian, who might take a seat on the judging panel. That is, if we are to believe a report from Naughty Gossip.
“While producers have been looking at Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan, Keith Urban and other people within the music business, Ryan [Seacrest] thinks the show should hire Kim. Promotion and social media are now just as important to being a successful artist as singing and no one knows that world better than his pal Kim,” said an unidentified source. “People might moan at first that she doesn’t have experience with music but they did the same thing when Heidi Klum joined the panel at America’s Got Talent. At least Kim is from the USA and she certainly knows how to make great TV. Ryan is worried that if they just follow the format of the old show, that it will feel dated. Adding Kim will be a game-changer.”
The audacity that a show will give reigning Reality TV queen Kim Kardashian the power to judge the fate of up and coming singers… This would be worth tuning in for.
