After signing on pop singer Katy Perry to a $25 million contract to be a judge for the reboot of American Idol, now they have their eyes set on Lionel Richie.

TMZ reports think show producers think the music legend would be a perfect fit for the show. A source was quoted saying “extremely outgoing, which makes for good TV.

The question is how much dough they have left after paying Perry $25 million? Plus previous host Ryan Seacrest is reportedly looking to come back and seek a $10 million to $15 million contract.

Even if Richie signs a deal the third judge may be left with just pennies.
