Taking it to her Twitter page, the 32-year-old singer wrote, "SO thrilled @ABCNetwork is bringing back @AmericanIdol, and I'm bringing it back to the ??MUSIC?? ?? you at auditions?."
Before the confirmation came, the 'Roar' hit-maker dropped a hint about her 'American Idol' stint on the Ellen DeGeneres show.
"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."
As for the host, after weeks of rumours, it remains unconfirmed that Ryan Seacrest will resume his duties on the show.
