We have learned that, despite the fact that Katy Perry has just started her new gig as a judge on the American Idol reboot, she is struggling already! One source on set told us that ‘Katy Perry’s been worse than anyone ever could’ve imagined on American Idol.’
Although many people believe that someone writes the judges’ lines for them, in reality, their opinions ‘absolutely are not scripted.’
That being said, ‘it’s proving to be a massive issue for Katy as she literally has no clue what to say to any of the contestants. During auditions, Katy appeared to be completely at a loss as to what she should say. Her feedback and interactions with contestants are flat, and at times, very awkward.’
The insider added that ‘Along with constantly being late, this is not a good indication of the show’s reboot success. It is a complete train wreck!’
This is not good at all considering that the producers were counting on the fact that the show had gone for a long time with amazing ratings and wished to recreate that by bringing it back.
The revived singing competition premiered yesterday, March 11 and the reviews were pretty mixed.
Not only is Katy Perry struggling to do her new job right, but, as you may know by now, the show’s execs are also worried about Ryan Seacrest’s sexual misconduct scandal affecting Idol.
They believe that the allegations could really cause ratings to drop significantly considering Seacrest is its host.
What did you think of the first American Idol reboot episode? Was Katy Perry decent in her new role as a judge or was she really that bad?
