Katy Perry and Lionel Richie will be absent from American Idol on Sunday, May 7 (ABC, 8/7c), giving way to another.
Will join Luke Bryan on the judges' bench for one night. Perry and Richie will be in London for King Charles III's coronation.
So we can blame the royal family for this brief change. Both MIA judges will broadcast live from Windsor Castle on.
THANK YOU FOR VISITING
