Get Ready For Luke Bryan At American Idol — Producers REALLY Want Him To Sit In A Judge Chair!

Looks like Katy Perry may have another very popular artist sitting next to her in those American Idol judge chairs very soon!

According to media reports out in TMZ today, country music superstar Luke Bryan is in talks with producers about potentially becoming a judge on the hit show!

Producers have reportedly even made an offer to Luke, though we’re not sure what it is yet — and money will be an issue, considering Katy is due $25 million, and Ryan Seacrest is getting nearly $15 million.

The next-highest paid talent will reportedly be right around $6 million, but Luke is very, VERY popular in country music, and he could fetch even more money if he holds out!

Not only that, but filming is set to begin in a couple weeks, and they need to sort out their judge ranks before they get started — so producers better put together a pretty good offer!

Lionel Richie, Charlie Puth, and Keith Urban have all been rumored to be judges on the show, too, but now producers are reportedly really set on Luke Bryan as their guy.

We’ll see if he fits into Idol‘s budget restrictions, though.

What do U think, Perezcious readers?! Would you want to see Luke Bryan on Idol?!?!

Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva was convicted of corruption in July. Now he is on the road mobilising those he lifted out of poverty

Wearing their best red T-shirts, carrying flags and banners, and buzzing with excitement, thousands of people in this poor, dusty farming town had thronged the main square to see Lula and they screamed and stretched out their hands when he walked on stage.

The bearded, gravel-voiced leftist leader’s rule ended seven years ago, yet he remains the most popular Brazilian president in decades, if not in the country’s history.

Thousands of Rohingya flee Myanmar amid tales of ethnic cleansing

Huge influx of refugees expected to arrive in Bangladesh in coming days, with accusations of genocide in Rakhine state

Gunfire and explosions crackle in the hills. Plumes of smoke from burning villages streak the monsoon-grey sky. Refugees fleeing for their lives are pouring into Bangladesh over the Myanmar border as the conflict between Myanmar security forces and Rohingya militias escalates and risks spiralling into a humanitarian disaster.

The refugees say their villages are being raided and burned. They tell stories of the indiscriminate killing of civilians at the hands of security forces and Buddhist nationalists. Since 25 August, more than 18,500 Rohingya, a largely Muslim ethnic group, have fled into Bangladesh from Rakhine state. However, UN sources say they believe the true figure is closer to 28,000. And Bangladeshi aid workers claimed on Saturday that 70,000 – almost 10% of the Rohingya population – had crossed in less than 24 hours. “This is a new dimension,” said Adil Sakhawat, a journalist with the Dhaka Tribune.

Chime in: What are you most excited about in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update?

Yesterday, Microsoft announced an official release date for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update: October 17, 2017. It’s not the most exciting release ever, but we’re still anxiously anticipating the update. What say you?

We’ve been writing about the Fall Creators Update for months, usually collecting whatever details we could from the Windows Insider builds that hinted of changes to come. So we think we have a good idea of what’s packed into the latest major Windows desktop OS update.

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update: All the changes so far

Personally, I’m most excited about seeing the Fluent Design System fleshed out a bit more across the OS. And the Fall Creators Update also packs some interesting changes to the Windows Shell, the Microsoft Edge browser, and various settings. There is a conversation going on right now on the subject over in our forums.
