Kim Kardashian Joining 'American Idol'?

Will Katy Perry be sitting next to Kim Kardashian on the American Idol judging panel? 

The rumour is Kardashian's good pal (and executive producer of her family's show Keeping Up With The Kardashians) Ryan Seacrest is pushing for her to land a spot as a judge. 

Producers have been looking at artists like Lionel Richie, Charlie Puth, Luke Bryan and bringing back former judge Keith Urban, but Seacrest thinks Kardashian is a good hire because it's not just about being a good singer anymore, it's about promotion and social media. Kardashian is definitely an expert at that!

The taped studio auditions are supposed to start at the end of the month but if they don't because two more judges aren't locked down, American Idol's schedule will interfere with Katy Perry's Witness world tour.
