Country singer, Luke Bryan, could be sitting next to Katy Perry as the second judge on the panel of the new "American Idol."
Producers have reached out to Luke and made him an offer. However, according to TMZ, money may be an issue.
"Idol" is paying Katy $25 million and Ryan Seacrest is getting somewhere close to $15 million. The next highest paid talent would likely get around $6 million.
'Idol' execs only have a few weeks to lock down the judge's panel before filming is scheduled to begin.
Lionel Richie, Charlie Puth and Keith Urban have all been mentioned, but sources say Luke is now definitely the one producers want as the second judge.
