Why should it be a bad move? She's probably gonna earn good money from this.

American Idol should stay off the air. The winners never do anything. My thoughts on Katy judging get those coins :lol:

In the United States, "American Idol" is the only show that has produced credible and solid music stars tho (Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, etc).

"The Voice" may be seen as "cooler" these days, but still to this date I haven't seen an actual big star coming out of that show, well, Melanie Martinez did, but not like Kelly or Carrie hit.

I know a handful of Idols winners. I know no artist attached to Voice. I know Melanie but never knew she was part of it :lol:

The voice only seems to excist to give some underperforming artists a nice extra check, and for Blake and Adam to be able to live their bromance :lol: replace the contestants with dolls, puppets or even cats and dogs and you probably get the same ratings :lol: :lol:

The Voice is getting old, it's pretty much a vehicle for artists to get career buzz again. At least with American Idol, artists like Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban are very articulate in judging the contestants even if they use the show to promote their music. Katy is probably going to be like Nicki Minaj or Mariah Carey, using the show for publicity more than anything.

Do they really pay her $25m? If so, then she did a very clever move by accepting the offer.

KATY PERRY SCORES $25 MILLION DEAL For 'American Idol'

Katy Perry is getting a staggering $25 MILLION to judge "American Idol" ... this according to sources familiar with the negotiation.

Multiple sources tell us ABC was desperate to sign a name before the Upfronts last week, when honchos announced she was the lead judge. As one source put it, "Katy had all the leverage. If ABC ended up announcing the show without a judge, they'd be screwed."

TMZ broke a story way back in 2012 that 'A.I.' was trying to get Katy as a judge but she rejected the network's $20 mil offer.

As we reported, ABC tried to get Kelly Clarkson but at the last minute she jumped ship and went to NBC's "The Voice." NBC also snagged Jennifer Hudson.

We're also told ABC is "on the verge" of signing the deal with Ryan Seacrest to host the show. Sources connected with the first run of 'Idol' tell us Ryan was making $15 mil a season at his high point. We're told Jennifer Lopez was also raking in $15 mil a season. So Katy blew them both away.

That's a ton lotta money! I hope it doesn't flop like Britney's X FActor gig where she paid millions of millions and the show was a disaster.
