Diplo and Katy Perry‘s brief romantic involvement fizzled out some time ago, though the moment in pop history was recently revisited when Katy Perry ranked the Major Lazer frontman third in bed behind other famous former beaus to the world via live stream. Diplo responded a few days later on Twitter in iconic Diplo fashion with, “I won the bronze medal in the sex Olympics.” Now it appears the pair are actually ready to get back down to business, though this time its reportedly in a multi-million dollar deal with ABC to reboot the music television phenomenon American Idol.

Last month, the Perry reportedly inked a deal with ABC to judge a new singing competition television show which coincides with Diplo’s recent mention to Billboard that he was in discussions with the show’s producers. Wes commented, “I’ve also been talking to American Idol on the side to try to help them with the (ABC network reboot) with Katy.”

The bronze medalist’s involvement with the show is unclear, though it appears the two pop giants are working together in some capacity on the series’ second take.

American Idol’s original run on Fox lasted 15 seasons, essentially paving the way for televised music competitions. After years of steadily declining viewership ratings, American Idol called it a day in April of 2016. ABC soon acquired the rights and announced in May of this year that the show would return, on it’s new network, for a sixteenth season in 2018.
