Hello… it is me you're looking for…

Lionel Richie seems to be the man of the hour for the folks over at American Idol: a new report out this morning alleges that he may in fact be the top pick for a judge spot on the show, to go alongside Katy Perry and an as-yet-unnamed third judge!

Really, though?!?!

Nothing against Richie — he's just… past his prime a bit?! Perry is a younger star, Ryan Seacrest obviously has that whole hosting thing down pat considering the original version of the show is where he got his start, but Lionel Richie?!?!?!?

It seems so… random???

But according to the report, it may not be random — and here's why:

Ryan Seacrest's American Idol Contract Negotiations Hit A Snag Over THIS Little Request!

Ryan hasn't signed his 'Idol' contract

Ryan Seacrest's contract for the American Idol reboot isn't a done deal yet!

As we previously reported, the TV personality has been offered somewhere between $10 and $15 million to once again host the celebrated singing competition. While new judge Katy Perry is making significantly more than the 42-year-old, *cough*$25 million*cough*, the industry vet isn't upset about his paycheck.

Reportedly, negotiations for Ryan's contract have reached a standstill over the fact that Seacrest wants an executive producer credit in addition to his host title. It's said Fremantle Media and Core Media are hesitant to hand over that title to Ryan and have been stuck in a stalemate over the issue for the last week. Yikes!

So far, it's unclear if Seacrest is trying to snag more day-to-day responsibilities. Although, we doubt that's the case as Ryan is already spread pretty thin thanks to his Live! gig, radio show, production company, etc.

Nonetheless, as the producers are still scrambling to lock in another judge (potentially Lionel Richie), we're sure they'll cave and give Ryan what he's asking for. We mean, it's hard to imagine Idol WITHOUT Seacrest!

Holy Shit! Katy Perry Is Making HOW MUCH From American Idol??

| Filed under: American IdolRyan SeacrestKaty PerryBusiness BlitzGIFs

Katy Perry is getting a fat paycheck!

Katy Perry's American Idol deal is even bigger than we would have thought!

As we previously reported, the Swish Swish songstress signed on to be an American Idol judge on its new network ABC.

Now, it's being said the 32-year-old is pocketing $25 million, according to TMZ's sources!

They're reporting Katy had the upper hand when it came to negotiations as they wanted to have someone on board ahead of their ABC Upfronts! One source spilled:

"Katy had all the leverage. If ABC ended up announcing the show without a judge, they'd be screwed."

Meanwhile, the network is still trying to sign Ryan Seacrest on, who was making $15 million at the peak of the show.

We can only imagine how much he could pull in now, but we have a feeling it won't be near Katy's big payday!
