However, a source told Us Weekly that the former "American Idol" contestant has already signed on for a place on the panel.

No talent for ABC's revival has yet been announced but Ryan Seacrest is expected to return as host and Katy Perry is in negotiations for the anchor judges spot. She recently announced that $1 of every ticket sale for her upcoming Witness album tour will be going to the Boys and Girls Club of America. Better yet, it's all about the car-crash auditions that bring American crazies out of the woodwork.

Perry, 32, is the first major name to come aboard the reboot of the show, which was canceled by Fox Broadcasting a year ago after 15 seasons amid declining viewership ratings.

"So glad (ABC) is bringing back "American Idol", and I'm bringing it back to the music", Perry said via Twitter. Shannon Noll, Cosima De Vito, Wes Carr, Stan Walker and Damien Leith.

Perry definitely has plenty on her plate these days.

Perry said jokingly and with a smile, "Judge not, lest you be judged", referring to her new role on the show. Later she is basted in oil.

No other judges have been named yet.

American Idol is one of the most successful singing competition series, launching the careers of Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Clarkson (the season one winner), Adam Lambert, and Chris Daughtry. While it won't be an alum of the competition it is someone who has history with the show. "Now, embracing my 30s - which I think is so bomb.com, I love it so much - I love being a woman, and I love, you know, a consensual interaction". The Grammy-winning singer is reportedly being vetted by the show's producers, as well. "If they were going to have a judge that's from the show". "Can't I have them both at the same time?" she asked when forced to decide between Hiddleston and Prince Harry. While ABC's new schedule doesn't give any hint where Idol might land, sources say the network is considering airing the show on Sunday and Monday nights.
