ALL SMILES: Katy Perry will be paid a staggering £19.3million to host American Idol
The pop princess, a campaigner for equal pay for women, will pocket the staggering amount to appear as a judge on the upcoming reboot of the talent show.
The figure is £7.7m more than Ryan Seacrest previously got for hosting the show.

While she would not confirm the amount she is being paid, Perry said she was satisfied with her contract.
She added: “I’m proud that, as a woman, I got paid. And you know why?
"I got paid, pretty much, more than any guy that’s been on the show.”
Perry said American Idol bosses had wanted her to join the judging panel for many years, but the timing was never right.
