Katy Perry Signs $25 Million Deal With 'American Idol'

There have been reports that the American Idol reboot is on a tight budget, but apparently that didn't apply when hiring Katy Perry.

According to TMZ, Katy will get a whopping $25 million to do the show. Supposedly the network wanted to make a splash with the announcement, and knew they couldn't do it without a big-name judge on board.

In comparison, JLo was only making $15 million during her last season.
