Katy Perry Says New 'American Idol' Needs to Produce A 'Legit' American Idol

Katy Perry shines in silver at the Disney ABC Television Group Hosts TCA Winter Press Tour 2018 party on Monday night (January 8) in Pasadena, Calif.

The singer hit up the American Idol panel with fellow judges Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie, as well as host Ryan Seacrest to chat about the rebooted reality program.

Here’s everything you need to know about it:

What days will it air?

American Idol will return on March 11, airing both Sunday and Monday — up until the all-athletes season of DWTS premieres on April 30th. It will go down to just one day then — Sunday. The two-night finale will air on May 20th and 21st.

No more bad auditions

Showrunner Trish Kinane shared that the new ABC version will nix all bad auditions.

“It doesn’t feel comfortable to put borderline unstable people up on stage and laugh at them,” she shares. “I think that people once thought that the judges saw everyone, and now you know there’s a line of producers who screen before them…We want the humor, but we don’t want the exploitation.”

Seeking a star:

Katy is passionate about finding a star from the program: “Literally, we are wasting our time if we do not find a star. You know, America doesn’t need another star. They need, like, a real legit American Idol.”

She adds, “It’s a crowded place, and I take it really seriously, sometimes to my detriment. But I’m very cut-and-dry and get straight to the point, but I think that is our purpose.”

Rebecca Black Reveals Katy Perry Helped Her When She Was Being Bullied

Rebecca Black Reveals Katy Perry Helped Her When She Was Being Bullied

Rebecca Black became a viral joke when she was just 13 years old, a vulnerable age for anyone even out of the spotlight.

In a new essay, the now-20-year-old “Heart Full of Scars” singer opens up about the constant online bullying, and about how Katy Perry‘s kindness towards her was a light in the darkness.

“There were some breaks in the clouds,” she wrote for NBC. “I got to meet and work with Katy Perry who, in the midst of so much hate directed at me was nice to me in a totally non-ironic way.”

“It didn’t make up for the abuse I was experiencing, but between that and the adults who tried to protect me, maybe it did help mitigate some of the worst of the pain and fear,” Rebecca continued.

“I will never fully understand how I became one of the first people to experience online bullying in an extremely intense way. But I do know now that what happened to me is truly just a global extension of something that goes on in every school, on every computer screen and in every neighborhood.”

It’s amazing that Rebecca overcame that experience and is now using her past and her platform to fight online bullying.
