Is it just us, or do a LOT of people watch American Idol to see the absurd wanna-be contestants rejected early in the very first episodes??

Because if Katy Perry's recent comments are to be believed, it sure sounds like this season's American Idol judges — Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie — are going to change things up in a MAJOR way!

In an interview with People about how the trio's judging styles will come across on TV this season, Perry dropped the bomb about the group's intention to let people down easily (below):

Poor Kelly Ripa — things probably aren't going to work out for her as a professional singer!

The Live host decided to try her hand at American Idol auditions on Friday afternoon after being encourage by daytime co-host Ryan Seacrest, and as you can see (above)… uh… it didn't go so well!!!

Of course, the segment is still a must-watch, if only to see Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan, and Katy Perry literally falling all over each other in their judge roles to say something polite to Kelly as they offer feedback from her audition.

Some people just don't have what it takes for various parts of showbiz, and regardless of whether she grew up with "the voice of an angel," it's probably not going to get Kelly Ripa a ticket to Hollywood.

Aw, shucks!! LOLz!!

LOVES the segment!!! U???

Seacrest out… of a job??

As we reported, on Sunday, Ryan Seacrest awkwardly hosted E!'s Oscars red carpet amid allegations he sexually harassed former stylist Suzie Hardy.

While some celebs avoided the host, the 43-year-old managed to speak to a couple of A-listers including Whoopi Goldberg, Tiffany Haddish, Mary J. Blige, and Taraji P. Henson, who later denied throwing shade at the American Idol personality.

Despite its relative success, the pre-show received lackluster ratings, compared to last year's coverage.

According to Variety, Seacrest's segment averaged a 0.4 rating in adults 18-49, and had 1.3 million viewers, which is down 43% in the key demographic and approximately 35% in total viewers from 2017's show.

In an interesting twist of events, Monday's post-Oscars episode of Live With Kelly and Ryan received a 3.0, making it the top syndicated talk show of that day.

Seacrest has repeatedly denied the allegations. Several colleagues — including Kelly Ripa – have come to his defense.
