Sources familiar with the ongoing negotiations revealed the team will announce the “Roar” singer will join the Idol cast Tuesday (May 16). Ryan Seacrest has reportedly been asked to host once again.

Meanwhile, Perry has a new album and North American tour coming up, which might make committing to a regular gig challenging for her busy schedule. Fans will have to just wait and see what unfolds over the next few days.
