Katy PerryShe may have played coy at the Ellen Degeneres Show last Tuesday but on the same day, we confirmed through Twitter that Katy Perry is going to be one of the judges on the reboot of American Idol.

When asked by Ellen on the show, Katy only replied: “Judge not lest ye be judged. But they didn’t say anything about constructive criticism, and I’m good at that.”

The confirmation was from Eyewitness News’ George Pennacchio who shared the news on Twitter.
