Excerpts from the longer article (*linked above)

“[Katy]Perry is the first onscreen talent to join the competition-series revival. As Variety reported last week, Ryan Seacrest is in advanced talks to rejoin the franchise as host, but no deal has yet been finalized. ABC had approached “Idol” season-one champion Kelly Clarksion about joining the reboot as a judge, but those talks were scuttled when Clarkson signed on as a coach for season 14 of NBC’s “The Voice.” 

 ABC has also held talks with country star Carrie Underwood to join the series, as well as fellow “American Idol” alum Adam Lambert. Perry and Lambert are both represented by Direct Management Group.”
