MANILA — With the “Search for the Idol Philippines” nearing its premiere, one of the superstar-judges of its American counterpart is helping promote the ABS-CBN program.
In a video released on Thursday, “Firework” hitmaker Katy Perry addressed her Filipino fans as she expressed her excitement over the latest iteration of the global “Idol” franchise.
“Hey, Philippines! I’m Katy Perry, and I’ll be keeping my eyes glued on ‘Search for the Idol Philippines.’ Catch only on ABS-CBN,” she said.
Perry is seen alongside fellow “American Idol” judges Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie in the clip.
