We can't say we didn't see this coming.

The American Idol revival seemed to be tripping from the start after paying a cool $25 million to secure first judge Katy Perry.

As we reported, Katy Kat's healthy paycheck royally screwed over the budget for the reality singing competition, leaving very little wiggle room to negotiate with the other two judges.

The production eventually booked Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan to complete the superstar trio, making it look like everything is running smoothly on the surface.

But behind the scenes, execs are apparently worried that this overpriced concert might completely blow up in their faces!

An insider told Page Six that Katy's deal — not to mention Ryan Seacrest's hefty $15 salary — left mere "pennies" for fellow judges, cutting into costs so deep that execs had to expand their budget to land the rest of the talent. The source explained:

kelly ripa orders ryan seacrest to cancel gma appearance

Looks like Kelly Ripa's still PISSED at Michael Strahan!

As you surely know, the former Live! cohosts had a falling out when Strahan jumped ship to join Good Morning America. At the time, it was believed that Ripa had been blindsided by the news. So it's not surprising to learn that the blonde TV personality reportedly sabotaged Ryan Seacrest's scheduled Wednesday appearance on the ABC morning show.

According to Page Six, Miz Ripa demanded that her (current) Live! cohost cancel his appearance on GMA at the very last minute. Seacrest was slated to appear on the program to promote American Idol alongside judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan.

New American Idol Judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, & Luke Bryan Discuss The Show's Revival & Las Vegas Shooting On GMA

It's not all fun and music for the judges of the new American Idol.

That's one thing that was made clear when Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan assembled together for their first interview on Good Morning America.

On Wednesday, the judges — or, "the dream team" as Katy put it — were brought out on the ABC morning show where they revealed just how much work it takes for an aspiring singer to become America's next superstar.

The interview then took a serious turn as the trio addressed the harrowing mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday, and spoke on where they believe America should go from here.

Richie said he worries about fans' live music experiences being taken away by fear of violence, while Bryan admitted to feeling "nauseated" for the horrors that his dear friend Jason Aldean saw that night.

But Perry was a bit more outspoken, saying that while she prays everyday, "prayer without action is powerless." In addition to sending thoughts and prayers, the pop star said we as a society "need to take an unfortunate good, hard look at what our rules and our boundaries are with gun reform."

Looks like these judges are already copacetic. Ch-ch-check out their first interview (below).

The deal is not officially done yet, but it's as close as can be: Luke Bryan is almost a sure-thing to be the second judge on the upcoming re-boot of American Idol!!

The country singer hasn't signed his contract yet, and so entertainment sources don't want to come forward and confirm anything, but according to TMZ the deal is as close as it can be, and the star should sign in the coming days.
