Our 'A.I.' sources tell us ... the show's talent budget has a $40 million cap, which has been depleted by signing Perry for $25 mil and Ryan Seacrest for just over $10 mil. So, producers are having to get creative and sweeten the deal by offering celebs Disney perks that will turn into a big payday.

 

We're told the perks include production deals, licensing and merchandising deals for Disney properties ... and also theme park partnerships. For example, Disney's Hollywood Studios features the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith ... but can always add more names.

$5 million + Disney deals for the last 2-3 judges. What a tragedy :rip:

Not free Disneyland passes to be a judge. They should just let Katy do one season by herself. :ahh:

Katy's contract totally destroyed this show. How on Earth did they think signing her on for that much was a good idea?

Why on earth did they pay $25M for Katy? :rip: I like her but the GP hates her now, she's going to decrease viewing numbers :rip: I really don't see how anyone could possibly think Katy is going to bring $25M+ worth of revenue to the show :rip:

Just let Katy judge on her own... Let's be honest, if you were auditioning, she'd be the only person you'd care about.

They should get Max Martin on, I'm sure he'd be happy to do it now that it seems likely he won't have a #1 this year

They clearly sealed Katy's deal before the Witness era and didn't realize how it will pan out. :rip:

Merchandising deals at Disney land is kind of a good deal. I would sign and get more next season.

they can only afford z-listers at this point. maybe the maids who clean katy's dressing room could judge. i bet they would appreciate the disneyland passes. although their promo deals would be confusing

Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Charlie Puth

 

 

Omg I want this now :jonny3: When I went on this in Paris I have never been as scared in my entire life, but if I heard Charlie's soothing voice, I could picture him playing the piano with his feet and I'd enjoy the ride even more :jonny2: 

 

Make it happen, American Idol / Disney

A mess.

What they should do imo is get a celeb who is unknown in the US but has success in the UK for example.

And then get a decent judge for like 3-4m.
