Katy Perry reportedly shows up late to American Idol reboot tapings. A production staff revealed that the "Roar" singer typically arrives 10 to 25 minutes after call time.
Fortunately, Perry's co-judges, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, are reportedly not upset over her late arrivals. Perry was the first to join the judges' panel of American Idol reboot. Rumors suggested that she was given a $25 million deal to help find the next best singer or "idol" in the country.
Reboot Judges Compared To Original Judges
Months later, Bryan and Richie signed on to be part of the show. The auditions for American Idol reboot kicked off last year, and the production team already noticed that the trio lacks comedic chemistry.
The "Dark Horse" singer has been described as a fun judge while Richie tends to be very straightforward, and Bryan's mostly focused on aspiring country artists. Even though their chemistry works, the staff said that the three judges are not at each other's throats either in a serious or fun way.
The original American Idol became one of the most coveted reality TV shows in the country because of its original judges, namely Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson.
Major Difference Between The Two Shows
In November, Bryan said that fans can expect their approach to be different from the original judges.
"We're artists, not record company executives or critics. These 15 and 16-year-olds are still a couple of years away, but you can see their promise, the potential. We're not there to discourage them. If we word it wrong, they may give all up," said Bryan.
Editors of American Idol reboot have been tasked to edit the episodes well because it could make or break the show. Since Perry, Richie, and Bryan are still getting used to judging with each other, the edited episodes could make it seem as though they're having more fun than they really are.
Singer Denies Plastic Surgery Rumors
American Idol reboot will premiere on ABC on Sunday, March 11 at 8 p.m. Prior to the show's official release date, Perry was accused of undergoing plastic surgery to improve her appearance. However, the singer clarified that she has not had any surgeries.
"I've done lasers and got filler injections under my eyes for the hollowing - which I'd recommend for everyone who wants a solution for their dark circles - but all of my assets are real. People tend to think they are fake, but it doesn't really matter," said Perry.
