Rumor has it that NIKKI SIXX from MOTLEY CRUE is in line to be the third judge on “American Idol”. KATY PERRY is already signed on, and ABC has allegedly been negotiating with LIONEL RICHIE for a while now.
FULL STORY: If “sources” are to be believed, the new “American Idol” judges’ panel will be made up of KATY PERRY, LIONEL RICHIE, and NIKKI SIXX from MOTLEY CRUE.
Katy’s the only one who’s official, and the Lionel Richie thing has been rumored for a while now. But so-called “sources” say his deal is close to happening, and he’ll get between $3 million and $5 million.
If they get Nikki, it’ll be for less than that. As everyone knows, Katy is getting $25 million.
RYAN SEACREST still hasn’t signed on to return as host, but he reportedly met with ABC execs this week to work out the final details. He’s supposedly going to make between $10 million and $15 million.
