Kim Kardashian Joining American Idol: EXCLUSIVE
The “American Idol” reboot still has not locked down a second or even third judge to join Katy Perry on the show that starts produciton in just a few weeks. But Ryan Seacrest thinks he has the perfect solution – hire his pal Kim Kardashian.
“While producers have been looking at Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan, Keith Urban and other people within the music business, Ryan thinks the show should hire Kim. Promotion and social media are now just as important to being a successful artist as singing and no one knows that world better than his pal Kim,” sources tell Straight Shuter. “People might moan at first that she doesn’t have experience with music but they did the same thing when Heidi Klum joined the panel at America’s Got Talent. At least Kim is from the USA and she certainly knows how to make great TV. Ryan is worried that if they just follow the format of the old show, that it will feel dated. Adding Kim will be a game-changer.”
Auditions in front of the judges start at the end of September.
