Chris Martin and Katy Perry are in talks to become judges on American Idol.
The axed FOX singing competition is being revived by by rival network ABC to be shown next year in 2018.
According to the Daily Mirror, Coldplay frontman Chris has been in negotiations with the show since it was approved for a comeback and it’s hoped he’ll confirm as a new judge in the next few weeks.
“ABC bosses were keen to get Chris on board as soon as the new series was given the green light,” a source told the newspaper.
“Chris is a great performer and they think he would make the perfect judge.”
TMZ.com meanwhile are reporting that Katy Perry is also in talks and that she’s even scheduling potential tour dates for her new album around the show’s taping schedule.
A source told the website that the 32-year-old is “very interested” in the possibility of judging on American Idol.
Simon Cowell, who previously served as a judge on the talent show, has ruled himself out of returning to the rebooted singing competition, while American Idol alum Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson are set to coach on rival show The Voice instead.
