Sure, a lot of people will tune into the revival of American Idol just to see Katy Perry dish -- but she believes there are plenty of other reasons to check it out.
Katy tells Billboard that she sees the show carving out a place in the world because judges and producers can help you separate the wheat from the chaff. She says, "I think when [the show] was really in its heyday in the early 2000s, that was when music was changing and it was a real platform... Now you can put your music out on Spotify. You can put your music out on iTunes. You can put it out on social media. Now it’s too much. We need a filter, and I think, strangely, American Idol is back to be that filter once again."
The new American Idol premieres March 11th on ABC.
