Katy Perry: I'd quit singing to be a permanent 'American Idol' judge

By Christopher Rocchio, 01/27/2010 

American Idol may have a new candidate for Simon Cowell's upcoming judging panel vacancy.

Katy Perry enjoyed her ninth-season American Idol guest-judging stint so much that she'd quit her pop singer profession to do it full time.

"The American Idol experience was awesome," Perry told MTV News after her guest-judging duties filmed in September.

"If I was offered that job as a permanent host, I would ditch my career and take on that career."

Perry was one of several guest judges to fill-in for Paula Abdul -- who last August announced that she would not be returning as a judge for American Idol's ninth season.

Perry judged American Idol's ninth-season auditions in Los Angeles, which aired last night on Fox.

"It's kind of like judging a talent show," she told MTV News.

"American Idol was great fun. It was so easy. I didn't really make anybody cry, but I did tell the truth to some kids that might have needed to hear it."

While Perry said she would jump at the chance to serve as a regular American Idol judge, she also expressed relief about not having to make the really tough decisions.

"I guess the pressure gets really on when you start eliminating the number of people that are going through," she told MTV News. "Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, and then you've got the final two. That can be kind of tense and stressful."
