Luke Bryan has reportedly landed the second seat as a judge on the rebooted "American Idol" series alongside Katy Perry, but sources say the the deal is NOT officially done.
According to reports Luke is confirmed as the 2nd judge, although the details of his payment/perks are unclear for now. However, we're told he hasn't signed on the dotted line as of Sunday, but is expected to sign on within days. In other words, it's happening soon.
'Idol' always wanted Luke, but couldn't come to terms on money. He wanted more than they were offering, and producers tried supplementing his salary with a Disney deal due to budget restrictions.
'Idol' still has not locked down a 3rd judge as of yet, and time/money is running out. On the short list where Lionel Richie to Charlie Puth and Keith Urban.
