According to TMZ, the American Idol reboot "seems to be in crisis," and it's all because of the judges. Filming is set to start in six weeks, and the only judge on board is Katy Perry.
Rumored judges like Lionel Richie, Charlie Puth, Luke Bryan, and Keith Urban aren't even close to signing on, and it all has to do with money. Lionel is reportedly asking for $10 million, which is $15 million less than Katy, but double the amount that Idol wants to pay.
Rumor has it that they would ideally like to have four judges this go around, but might settle for three.
