Katy Perry, who served hit after hit to the pop industry and climbed the musical ranks in no time, is set to host ABC’s new showAmerican Idol.” The Hollywood Reporter says that Perry will serve as a host and judge on the revival series.

The revival of “American Idol” will premiere on ABC in December 2017 or January 2018. Previously, the show premiered on Fox, which canceled it in 2016 due to poor ratings. This time, ABC is bringing a revival to “American Idol,” and hopes that the ratings will be far better than the original.

Katy Perry in the new show

Miss Perry will serve as a judge, and that's confirmed by an ABC spokesperson.

She is set to join a pantheon of musicians who have had judged stints on the show, including 1980’s pop icon Paula Abdul and the famous singer Mariah Carey.

Born in October 1984, Perry is a professional singer and songwriter of the US. In 2001, she contracted with Red Hill Records and released her first album “Katy Hudson” under her birth name. Then, she moved to Los Angeles and joined hands with Red Hill.

Katy has also worked with top producers, including Dr. Luke, Max Martin, and Glen Ballard. She rose to fame in 2008 after the success of her singles "I Kissed a Girl," "Hot n Cold," “Firework,” “Teenage Dream,” and “California Gurls.”

She tied the knot with Russell Brand in October 2010, in Rajasthan.

Perry later stated that her conflicting career schedules and his desire to have children before the marriage ended this relationship. She has been a part of several Hollywood films, such as “The Smurfs,” “Brand: A Second Coming,” “Jeremy Scott: The People's Designer,” and “Zoolander 2.”
