“Katy had all the leverage. If ABC ended up announcing the show without a judge, they’d be screwed,” one source explained. ABC was needing to sign a big name before the Upfronts launched last week, which explains the staggering payout.

Sources report Jennifer Lopez only made $15 million a season at her high point, while long-time host Ryan Seacrest was earning the same.
