American Idol Judges Panel Is Final And It Includes Major Country Star

"American Idol's" reboot starts filming next week with all the judges locked in. Rumors have been flying for months on who would join Katy Perry on the panel and it's finally official, according to TMZ.

Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie are joining the all star cast to find America's next big star. Bryan will be making about $13 million, and Richie $10 million, according to reports.


With some pretty large salaries on the panel,the re-boot will have to be a smash hit or it won't last long. The reason it was cancelled last time was because it wasn't profitable with the huge salaries they where paying, versus the ad dollars received. 

It's exciting though to know one of GA's own is on the panel though!
