'American Idol' May Be Delayed, and That Causes Problems with Katy Perry

"American Idol" has backed itself into a corner, because it might need to delay taping until it lands more judges ... but that doesn't work for the only judge it's got so far -- Katy Perry.

Our 'Idol' sources tell us ... Thursday is the last stop for the show's tour bus auditions, and it's just weeks away from the planned taped auditions with the judges. Problem is -- producers are no closer to locking down stars to join Katy on the panel.

So the dilemma is simple and serious -- if the show's forced to postpone filming, it will likely conflict with Perry's Witness tour schedule producers worked so hard to accommodate in the first place.

Adding to the dilemma ... 'A.I.' still hasn't signed desired judge #2, Luke Bryan. We're told he wants more money, and the Disney perks he was offered instead of cash didn't cut it. 'Idol's' no closer to landing the 3rd judge.

Our sources say everything's still up in the air -- not a good place to be for a legendary show trying to make a triumphant return to TV.

So basically, a month has passed and they are still in no better position.

Why are they even doing this? Wasn't American Idol originally cancelled because no one was watching it anymore?

There’s plenty of people to be judges. Just ask Mel B and Kelly Rowland - both experienced and will almost definitely be up for it.

It's a canceled show, it's no surprise that no one is on board. :-? :-?

They should really change the format if they want to survive, people barely watch TV anymore.

I wonder if Lionel Richie asked for Mariah's advice on their tour and what Mariah might have told him. :lol:

Mariah was the worst judge ever, to think that she was the vocal template of these kinds of shows, she gave the most impersonal advice and contributions. Her 2008 mentoring episode of Idol was much better.
