‘American Idol’ May Be Delayed Due To Blown Budget And No Judges
“American Idol” might need to delay taping auditions until it finds two more judges to join Katy Perry and Ryan Seacrest – the only two stars who have signed on to the show’s reboot on ABC.
According to TMZ, preferred judge #2 Luke Bryan has not signed yet because he wants more money. Disney offering up side deals did not help.
The show is just weeks away from taping auditions in front of judges and the “tour bus” auditions will be done this Thursday.
If “American Idol” taping is delayed, this will create trouble for Katy Perry’s “Witness” tour. She scheduled everything around planned taping for the show and now all of that might be in flux.
As for judge #3… he or she is nowhere close to getting signed up.
