As the only confirmed judge on Fox's American Idol reboot, Katy Perry is looking to fill the other empty judge's seats with some powerhouse vocalists.

"I'm really pulling for Lionel [Richie], because I think Lionel is an icon, and not only that, but if you've ever met Lionel, he just knows how to charm the whole room. I love Lionel", she said of her first pick.

The "Swish Swish" singer then went on to reveal what kind of judge she thinks she's going to be when the show returns next year.

While we wonder who will play the future Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson to Katy Perry's Simon Cowell, the pop star already has a few named in mind.

"I'm really pulling for Lionel, because I think Lionel is an icon", the Witness singer said of the "All Night Long" singer now co-headlining a tour with Mariah Carey.

"I'm not going to be one of those people [who throw softballs]", she explained of her role as a Season 16 judge. "I really respect him. I don't need to be there to win the popular race, I just need to be there to find someone I can make their dreams come true". "His whole presences just brightens the whole room". "Obviously he has his own big fan base, but I think he's really talented", she explained.

And she admits 25-year-old Charlie Puth would also be an interesting addition to the panel: "Between Lionel and me, it would be nice to have someone a little more fresh", Perry added. He's a writer, he's a producer, he's young, he's fresh, he's hip - he's Charlie Puth!. We want a star and we need a star'.
