American Idol's New Judges Explain Why They Are All Nice

Don’t expect any of American Idol‘s three new judges – Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie – to be mean to contestants the way Simon Cowell was on the show.

The three entertainers told Variety that none of them would take on the Simon “role.”

“We’re artists, not record company executives or critics,” Luke said. “These 15- and 16 year-olds are still a couple of years away, but you can see their promise, the potential. We’re not there to discourage them. If we word it wrong, they may give up all up.”

“Young kids take things to heart. I can be sarcastic as all get out, and even a little snarky,” Katy added. “Like Simon, I’m also a truth-teller, a straight shooter. But at the end of the day, I’m not here to tell anyone they suck. It’s not about that.”

Kim Kardashian Takes North to See Katy Perry in Concert

Kim Kardashian and Katy Perry pose for a photo backstage at the Witness Tour on Friday night (November 10) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The 37-year-old reality star took her four-year-old daughter North West and a group of her best friends, including cousin Penelope Disick, to the concert.

The timing of Kim and Katy‘s get-together is pretty significant as it took place on Taylor Swift‘s reputation album release day.

It’s no secret that Taylor has been in very public feuds with both Kim and Katy and many have come to the conclusion that songs on the album were written about the ladies.

“Told you I was a secret Kardashian,” Katy captioned the photo of her, Kim, and the kids.

Katy Perry Gets Stuck in the Air During Her Concert (Video)

Katy Perry had a mechanical malfunction during the latest stop on her Witness world tour!

The 32-year-old singer got stuck in the air when the platform she floats over the audience on stopped working. The concert took place on Wednesday (October 18) in Nashville, Tenn.

“This is the first time I’ve been stuck in space,” Katy said, referring to the float’s depiction of Saturn. “I know I’m kind of a space cadet, but actually, this thing is stuck. What should I do? Should I tell some jokes, should I tell some stories, should I just sing another song? You’d better put your phones up, it’s a YouTube moment!”
