American Idol is considering Jon Bon Jovi as a potential replacement for Katy Perry on the judges’ panel for the upcoming season.

Perry announced her departure after Season 22, and with the show renewed for Season 23, the search for her replacement is on.

Bon Jovi is reportedly demanding a $25 million paycheck, which is causing negotiations to stall.

If Bon Jovi joins the panel, it would break the show’s tradition of having at least one female judge and two males.

The show has not officially announced a new judge yet, keeping fans in suspense.

Another pop artist mentioned as a potential replacement for Perry is Pink!
