TMZ reports that the producers of American Idol have officially made Luke Bryan an offer to come on board for the upcoming season alongside Katy Perry. According to the report, American Idol is paying Perry $25 million, and Ryan Seacrest is receiving around $15 million to host. Keith Urban earned $5 million for season 13. Sources tell TMZ that the next-highest-paid star on the reality show would probably get offered around $6 million.
Earlier this year it was reported that Luke, Lionel Richie and Charlie Puth were all being considered for the judges’ panel. It’s not clear whether Luke has responded or what his decision might be, but Katy Perry is the only judge confirmed so far. American Idol will return next year, only two years after FOX canceled the show.
