Katy Perry scored huge with American Idol-–she will be banking $25 million for her season on the Idol reboot! According to a new report Idol producers wanted to seal the deal and offered Katy a whopping “Katy had all the leverage. If ABC ended up announcing the show without a judge, they’d be screwed.” The number is wayyyy up from what Jennifer Lopez was making when she was up (around $15 m).

American Idol has been attempting to woo Katy for years since she was a guest judge years ago. At the time she was offered $20 million, but declined. Up until a few weeks ago Idol really wanted Kelly Clarkson, but NBC’s The Voice snatched her away! And Ryan Seacrest is thiiiiis close to signing a contract.

OMG Katy brought on Rihanna to judge!
