Lionel Richie had a secret meeting with American Idol producers about a potential position as a judge on the reboot. According to the sources, the producers love the 68-year-old entertainer, and think that he would be a great fit for the show. “They like his vibe. They view him as a nice judge.” However, the sources said producers will not negotiate with Richie until Ryan Seacrest’s hosting deal is done. Katy Perry has already been announced as a judge on the show.
