"Y'ALL! I'm having TWO much fun to stop now... so why don't we keep it going!? EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE that @lukebryanofficial, @lionelrichie, @ryanseacrest and yours truly will be BACK with another season of #AmericanIdol," Perry tweeted Friday.
"We knew that 'American Idol' on ABC would unleash an opportunity for singers from all walks of life to realize their dreams and that these incredible contestants would have America rooting for their success," Channing Dungey, president of ABC Entertainment, said in a statement.
"I am thrilled that Katy, Luke, Lionel and Ryan will be back to once again embark on this 'Idol' journey with us to discover the next crop of inspiring talent."
