A moment like this… the new contestants of American Idol might have to wait an actual lifetime!

The rebooted singing competition might have to delay taping due to having trouble landing its final two judges — but that won't work for the judge they already spent MILLIONS to secure.

Idol sources tell TMZ that Thursday is the last stop for the show's tour bus auditions, and production is just weeks away from the planned taped auditions in front of the judges.

Which is a huge problem, because producers are still no closer to signing on two stars to join Katy Perry on the panel!

Production still hasn't signed on desired judge Luke Bryan, who unsurprisingly wants more money than the reported $6 million salary Idol was offering him (especially compared to Katy Kat's cool $25 million).

To make up for the low dough, ABC had reportedly offered the country crooner

Not only did he meet the American Idol host "when I literally had first moved there," the Good Time actor was living at the Oakwood apartments, a temporary housing complex in Burbank, California for people starting out in Hollywood.

It turns out the Twilight hunk had a very famous roommate! He told Seacrest:

"I was with Screech, Dustin Diamond. I loved it. I really miss it… Dustin was the first person to introduce me to Hot Pockets!"

Pepperoni or ham and cheese, RPatz??

Coincidentally, Ryan also had a similar connection to Diamond's Saved By The Bell costar Mario Lopez!

"We may have talked about it but when I first moved here, I lived in the apartments just down the street from the Oakwoods and guess who lived across the street from me? Mario Lopez! Slater! So all of us start with the Saved By The Bell cast and we try and grow from there."

Mr. Belding would be proud!

Anything REALLY can happen on live TV.

On Tuesday evening, America's Got Talent broadcasted live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. While there were plenty of technical difficulties throughout the show, it was a disagreement between judges Mel B and Simon Cowell which really captured our attention.
