Katy Perry says goodbye to American idol after seven seasons.
The singer announced her exit from the reality competition during an appearance on the show Jimmy Kimmel live to show. Kimmel asked Perry how long she would remain a judge on the ABC talent show, to which the singer said she planned to attend the Rock in Rio music festival in Brazil this fall.
Perry then dropped the bomb, saying, “So I think this will probably be my last season for Idol.”
“I like Idol so much,” she continued. “It connected me to the heart of America, but I feel like I need to feel that pulse at my own pace.”
Kimmel followed up and asked Perry what her co-stars, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, thought about her departure, she replied, “Well, they’ll find out tonight.”
“They know I have things planned for this year,” she added. “It’s going to be a very exciting year – for all the girl pop stars.”
Perry joined American idol when the revival landed on ABC in 2018. The singer said she didn’t know what the succession plan was, but noted that former judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy all stayed together as a trio for seven seasons, just like Perry, Bryan. , and Richie. However, the original trio was together for eight seasons, but was joined by fourth judge Kara DioGuardi in season 8.
“I love the show so much but I want to go see the world and maybe bring some new music,” Perry added. “Maybe I’ll come back if they ever have me.”
Perry’s final season on American idol will be season 22 which will premiere on February 12 on ABC.
