American Idol Is THIS Close To Locking In Their Stars As Mötley Crüe's Nikki Sixx Is Eyed For A Seat At The Judges' Table!

American Idol is so close to locking in its host and remaining judges.

As we previously reported, Ryan Seacrest has faced some hurdles while negotiating his contract for his return as host for the singing competition. While the Live! host agreed to be paid somewhere between $10 and 15 million for the gig, it's said he and the producers are clashing over his desire to be named an executive producer.

Apparently, the producers are unwilling to grant him this title as they rejected Katy Perry (who is being paid $25 million to be a judge on the show)'s request to be made an executive producer — and they don't want to ruffle any feathers. Still, Seacrest is likely to return to Idol as he reportedly met with ABC executives this week.

And while there are no updates about whether or not Lionel Richie has been locked in as a judge for the former FOX hit, it's believed the music legend is eyeing a contract somewhere in the range of $3 to $5 million. But what about that last spot at the judges' table??

Well, according to TMZ, both the Idol producers and the higher ups at ABC want Nikki Sixx from Motley Crue to be a judge. Why?? Because Mr. Sixx is supposedly willing to make less than Richie. Well, well!

Hopefully, Idol finishes up these contracts sooner than later or it'll just be Miz Perry running the show. Actually, we'd totally watch that show!

Ed Sheeran is staying out of it!

The British crooner is very vocal about his friendship with Taylor Swift, so you'd think he'd have a strong take on the songstress' most notorious case of Bad Blood.

But alas, the Galway Girl performer claims he doesn't really know much about Tay's longtime feud with Katy Perry!

In an interview with EW, the musician admitted he's "supportive" of his friends privately but made it clear he wants to stay away from the dramz in the public eye!

When asked about his stance on the Katy/Taylor beef, he explained:

Yup, Taylor Swift's ex enlisted the help of Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry, and Big Sean to make one hell of a banger, titled Feels. So it's no surprise that the song's music video is equally as dope!

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:
