I have no interest in judging American Idol revival: Cowell

"He's a low-key cheerleader who keeps the show moving and, with the judges as natural foils, allies himself with the audience and the contestants, never threatening to upstage the performers, even if he could".

When a reboot of "American Idol" was recently announced, it was odd for the show to not comment about the reboot's host or its judges lineup.

Billboard magazine Sunday said it had confirmed a report first published at TMZ.com saying that the "Rise" and "Chained to the Rhythm" singer, 32, had almost completed negotiations to headline the long-running singing competition, which ended its 15-season run on Fox previous year. My memories are when we first started.

On NBC, meanwhile, Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson, two of "American Idol's" most famous graduates, have signed on as judges for "The Voice". It makes a lot of sense too, considering that she was the singing competition's first victor.

According to TMZ, Perry and her team are already in the middle of contract and salary negotiations with the show's producers to figure out if she'll be the next one in the judge's chair!

"We've been talking to those two for a long time about joining "The Voice"," said Telegdy in a teleconference with journalists, reports People. As it stands, budget is an issue.

The Brit left "Idol" in 2010 when Fox brought his United Kingdom hit "The X Factor" across the pond. With that under consideration, the American Idol reboot's current producers would be wise not to commit that same mistake. In fact, it was Perry's third "Yes" that let Horan make it to the next round of X Factor, before he joined One Direction and then released music as a solo artist.

Martin is also a good candidate on account of his brief experience as adviser on the USA version of The Voice back in 2014. It has been speculated that "American Idol" is set to return to screens in March 2018 in a Sunday evening time slot.

It's not clear who will serve as host or on the panel of judges.
