In a press release sent out after the announcement, Perry said she was “honored” to be a part of the iconic show.
“I am honored and thrilled to be the first judge bringing back the American Idol tradition of making dreams come true for incredible talents with authentic personalities and real stories,” she shared. “I’m always listening to new music, and love discovering diamonds in the rough – from mentoring young artists on my label, or highlighting new artists on my tours, I want to bring it back to the music.”
Perry addressed rumors that she would be joining the show during a Tuesday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“Judge not, lest you be judged, but they didn’t say anything about constructive criticism, and I’m good at that,” she said cheekily.
