VMAs 2017: What to expect

"American Idol" Season 16 auditions have to roll no matter what and that's the dilemma the singing competition on TV is facing right now. As show judges and management cannot settle on their PF's and it just getting higher than the highest note. This upcoming season, Katy Perry expects a whopping $25 million while Lionel Richie doubles his paycheck to $10 million.

In a report from TMZ, it seems the management is now deliberating on how many they can pay to judge the television series. The only sure thing though is that multi-awarded artist Katy Perry will stay in that chair for good. Nonetheless, she needs a little more help as "Idol" hopefuls never end with the auditions already starting however filmed auditions has to wait until the end of September.

With just a month and a half to spare, there is a need to convince Charlie Puth, Keith Urban, and Luke Bryan to sign up the contract, while CarterMatt reports that Nile Rodgers is a potential candidate as well. Although they are no doubt qualified to be the judge of "American Idol", it takes a lot of bluntness to release the talent and development of new artists. More so, the connection of the artist to the judge has to be sealed and infectious as the show gains rating through good moments between the talents and their judges.

This has been a challenge to most talent competitions because searching for a star is just an easy task, but maintaining its status as "the most impactful show in the history of television" means hard work. In an interview with ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey and FremantleMedia Group CEO Cecile Frot-Coutaz, they have talked about what transpired the decision with regards to Katy Perry's high PF for the show.

They have emphasized how Perry manages to be funny, caring but at the same time with blunt honesty. Her musicality and character make her a fantastic part of "Idol." At this point, "American Idol" is now on a tedious work in choosing the right judges to join her for the show.
