Who Katy Perry Wants to Replace Her on American Idol

Katy Perry, the renowned singer and a judge on American Idol, has hinted at who she would like to see replace her on the show after her last season. In a recent interview with E! News, she expressed her admiration for artist Jelly Roll, who had appeared on the show earlier. Perry, set to leave American Idol after a seven-season stint, desires honest and fearless successors on the judge panel.

In the exclusive interview with E! News on April 15, Perry shared her thoughts on the ideal judge who could fill her shoes on American Idol. “I gotta say Jelly Roll was crazy when he came on the show,” the 39-year-old said. Praising Jelly Roll, Perry said that he could be a remarkable fit for the job.

Conveying her expectations, Perry stated, “I want a truth teller. I want someone that is not afraid to tell the truth in a graceful way.” These requirements seem to reflect her own approach during her tenure on the show.
