‘We Were A Train Wreck When We First Met’: Lionel Richie Talks Already Missing Katy Perry And What The New American Idol Judge Needs


Katy Perry has officially left the building. With the crowning of Abi Carter as American Idol’s Season 22 champion, the “Roar” singer’s time on the ABC singing competition is over. No replacement has been named to presumably join Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan for Season 23, though Perry has shared who she’d pick, and some celebs have thrown their hats in the ring. In the meantime, it seems Richie is feeling a bit nostalgic for the trio that worked together for seven years, as he talked about missing Perry already and an important quality the new judge needs to have. 

Lionel Richie Reminisces About Their ‘Train Wreck’ Early Seasons Together 

There’s no arguing how different Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie are from each other. They come from different eras and different genres of music, having taken different journeys to eventually come together on American Idol in Season 16. So it’s not hard to believe Richie when he recalls the judges being something of a hot mess in their early years together. He told USA TODAY

We were a train wreck when we first met. I knew Katy, I knew Luke, but we had never worked together. … Once we realized that Katy’s going to come out of her clothes somewhere during the course of the show – a malfunction is going to happen – and Luke is going to eat the pizza and drop it on his lap, it’s enough to keep you on pins. But it worked. I’m going to miss this group. Katy is going to be missed.
