Katy Perry is the latest big-name singer who American Idol producers are trying land as a judge.
According to TMZ, Idol execs "set their sights" on Katy after their bid for Kelly Clarkson "went south and she joined The Voice."
Sources says the producers are negotiating a deal for Katy to become the anchor judge and are expected to announce she's joining the ABC reboot this week.
A decision about the other two judges hasn't been made yet.
Another A-list artist who is rumored to be pursued by both shows is Carrie Underwood. Several tabloids are reporting that Idol and The Voice are in a bidding war for Carrie.
