Katy Perry is tired of being the only female judge on American Idol, and she wants Lizzo to join her on the panel. The singer shared this wish during a recent interview with Buzzfeed in which she got to play with puppies.


Katy Perry Wants Lizzo to Join American Idol

When asked who she would choose as a fourth judge on American Idol, Perry responded that she would love for Lizzo to join the panel. She added, “This is an invitation from me, Katy Perry. Lizzo, I’m asking you to join the panel.”

Perry explained that she’s been “feeling a little outnumbered on the testosterone” and “could really use some bold, honest hot takes.” Lizzo has talent show experience through her show Watch Out for the Big Grrrls, as well as guest judging gigs on RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Fans on Twitter shared their thoughts on the idea of Lizzo joining the show. As one user wrote, “This is the only way to get me to watch American Idol for the first time in years.” Another wrote that Lizzo joining the show “would be everything.”

Perry Would Like to Collab with Carrie Underwood

During her interview with Buzzfeed, Perry was also asked which American Idol winner she would like to collaborate with. She answered that she’d like to do something with Carrie Underwood, because she’s never collaborated with a female country star.

“I did a song with Thomas Rhett, which was really fun,” Perry said of their song “Where We Started.” She added of Underwood, “She’s, like, queen of country, so that’s cool. And she’s glam.”


Underwood, who won Season 4, is actually the last female country singer to be named the winner of American Idol. This year, the title went to Iam Tongi, who beat out Megan Danielle and Colin Stough in the Top 3 for Season 21.
