"Idol is coming back," DeGeneres said, though it was only met with a nod from Perry. "Supposedly, you're going to be the first announcement that you're going to be a judge on the new American Idol." "Judge not lest ye be judged," Perry retorted, citing a Bible verse. "But, they didn't say anything about constructive criticism and I'm good at that." <iframe width="640" height="360" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/kvEp3uw8z2Y" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> As for the host, after weeks of rumours, it remains unconfirmed that Ryan Seacrest will resume his duties on the show.
