Perry, 32, is the first major name to come aboard the reboot of the show, which was cancelled by Fox Broadcasting previous year after 15 seasons amid declining viewership ratings.

Meanwhile, on her social media page, Perry teased fans with the first "American Idol" reboot promotional photo which features her as the first judge. The cancellation followed a parallel decline in viewership ratings for the past 15 seasons.

In a statement released by ABC, Dungey referred to the "American Idol" reboot as the franchise's "new era" where Perry is "leading the charge".

ABC officially announced Perry as a judge during the network's Upfronts presentation in New York City on Tuesday. She further said that she wants to bring this back to the music.

Grammy-nominated Perry has been a pop powerhouse since her breakthrough single I Kissed a Girl in 2008, and is known for upbeat songs such as California Gurls and Firework, gimmicky outfits and vibrant, colourful performances geared towards a young audience. "She has a long history with the show, she's been on it as a guest a million times".

American Idol is a public competition that has brought so many famous artists to the limelight. Then again, celebrity judges were always there to discover new and promising talents.

At its peak from 2005 to 2007, the show was watched by more than 30 million viewers, but by 2014 only 10.6 million viewers tuned into the Idol season finale. She has sold more than 100 million records worldwide. Television consumption has gone down lately, and this is spelling harm to live TV shows as viewers often watch on-demand content. This TV show has grown to be popular recently with about 12.1 million viewers during its season 11 finale in December.
