CAST: The judges this season are Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan. Prior to the original show going off the air, Perry was a guest judge on the show and was direct, to say the least, with the contestants. Today, Perry tells People that, “Personally, I’m a straight shooter. I’m very cut and dry sometimes. You know it seems a little not soft I do try and watch myself because I do know how it feels to be in their shoes. I was in their shoes ten years ago.” Recently, Bryan appeared on several morning shows to talk about his judging gig and said that prior to taking the job, he hadn’t realized how many people he’d have to say “no” to in the auditions. That was difficult for him. Longtime host Ryan Seacrest has returned to the series. iHeartRadio DJ Bobby Bones is set to be the mentor for the Top 24 contestants this season.
