"We are thrilled to be ushering in this new era of American Idol with Katy leading the charge," ABC says in a statement. "Her incredible accolades speak for themselves."

"I am honored and thrilled to be the first judge bringing back the American Idol tradition of making dreams come true for incredible talents with authentic personalities and real stories," Perry says.

"I'm always listening to new music, and love discovering diamonds in the rough – from mentoring young artists on my label, or highlighting new artists on my tours, I want to bring it back to the music. See you at auditions."

Previous host Ryan Seacrest has claimed he would be interested in returning to the series. However, he recently joined 'Live with Kelly' as its permanent co-host with commitments to his daily iHeartRadio and syndicated radio show.
