"American Idol" Judges' Budget May Be Blown

Everyone that thought paying Katy Perry as much as 25 million dollars to judge “AI” was insane may be able to say “I told you so” now.

Rumor has it the budget to hire judges for the iconic show’s reboot is shot. Besides Perry’s haul, Ryan Seacrest was inked for around 10 million. So how do they add two more judges? Disney perks! We’re talking production deals, licensing and merchandising deals for Disney properties ... and also theme park partnerships.

Luke Bryan has been offered a slot, according to TMZ, but the deal isn’t sealed…yet.
