The "American Idol" reboot seems to be in crisis -- honchos still haven't locked down a second, third and possibly fourth judge, with only 6 weeks until cameras roll. 

 

Our 'Idol' sources tell us ... none of the previous front-runners -- Lionel Richie, Charlie Puth, Luke Bryan or Keith Urban -- are any closer to signing than they were a few weeks ago. We're told record producer Nile Rodgers has now been tossed in the mix.

 

The issue with Lionel, we're told, is his team's asking around $10 mil ... double what they want to pay. 'A.I.' producers are also still debating whether to go with 3 or 4 judges. At this point it all comes down to money, but it sounds like they'd like 4.

 

Auditions for 'Idol' hopefuls kick off Thursday in Orlando, but filmed auditions in front of the judges don't begin until the end of Sept. Source/Read More

25 million for Katy Perry was the nail in the coffin tbh, and considering she's a horrible live vocalist, that's not doing the show any favors in terms of credibility

Wait Katy Perry is judging this vocal talent show? Idk if anyone could take her seriously critiquing someone's pitch or something...

 

Ok I guess. Looks like that's a wrap

A mess. Didn't they have that finale goodbye show too? Just so they can try and "reboot" the franchise? :rip:

This is going to be such a mess I can't imagine it ending well for anyone on board.

At least she's a singer unlike most of the past judges. That's a step in the right direction.

Im sure they could get a few alum of the show to do it.

 

Kris Allen, Jordin Sparks, Adam Lambert, Kellie Pickler... etc etc

 

Im sure any of them would jump at the chance.
