Bet On American Idol’s Next Judge After Katy Perry

One of the longest-running and most popular reality television shows of all time will need to replace a beloved cast member, as American Idol judge Katy Perry will not return for season 23.

Judge panel shake-ups are part of the reality TV game, as no series has been immune to the departures of popular figures. The original judges for American Idol included Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, and Paula Abdul. Of course, that was when the show debuted on FOX in 2001.

American Idol began airing on ABC in 2018 and is entering its sixth season with the network and its 23rd overall. As fans, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan wait for the announcement of the next judge, American Idol betting sites have created odds forecasting who it could be.

American Idol Odds For Katy Perry’s Season 23 Replacement

  • Meghan Trainor +100
  • Jennifer Lopez +300
  • Tori Kelly +700
  • Kelsea Ballerini +700
  • Nicki Minaj +700
  • Jordin Sparks +700
  • Camila Cabello +700
  • Shakira +700
  • Dua Lipa +800
  • Miley Cyrus +800
  • Doja Cat +800
  • Cher +800
  • Sara Bareilles +800
  • Ruben Studdard +1000
  • Clay Aiken +1000
  • Jelly Roll +2500
  • Simon Cowell +3300

Right now, the odds suggest that it is all about that bass because pop singer Meghan Trainor is favored to be a part of American Idol 23. The odds posted at entertainment betting sites are paying out even money if she becomes a new judge for next season, placing her 200 points ahead of J-Lo.

“I want to drive to work [at] American Idol and then drive home… I love being part of that process. I just get way too attached. It’s my favorite show, I’ve watched it since I was a child.”

Meghan Trainor

Her placement at the top of the leaderboard is likely due to her public requests to become a part of the show. Trainor described the gig as her dream job during a recent interview with Real Housewives creator Andy Cohen, but does any of this equate to her being hired on?

On Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, Trainor stated that she’s been trying to get on the show for years. Aside from Perry’s absence, what makes this attempt any different than before?

In showbusiness, smoke often appears before a given fire, but are these American Idol futures just hot air?

“You know, they are keeping tight-lipped because I don’t even know… So whoever’s coming on the show has got to be, well, to come past Katy, you’ve got to be humorous forever, and, on top of that, knowledgeable.”

Lionel Richie

Entertainment prop bets are known for being revoked without notice so get in on the above Idol judge odds immediately if interested.
