American Idol Offers Disney Perks To Lure Potential Judges

American Idol is reportedly attempting to lure new judges to the show by offering them Disney perks as part of their partnership with the company. 

According to TMZ, perks being offered include production deals, licensing and merchandising deals for Disney properties, as well as theme park partnerships (i.e.: the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith). 

As the outlet points out, Idol is working with a tight budget after signing Katy Perry for $25 million and Ryan Seacrest for just over $10 million. 

However, it’s believed country star Luke Bryan is in talks to sign on as judge number two.
