Fans Urge ‘American Idol’ to Make Jelly Roll a Full-Time Judge With Katy Perry Exiting

With country music celebrating another year at the 2024 CMT Music Awards, stars like Lainey Wilson, Keith Urban, and countless others seemed all smiles as they walked the red carpet. But for Jelly Roll, the experience seemed like a dream as the rising star spent the last few years taking over country music. And showing that his stardom goes far beyond a single hit, the country singer swept all three categories he found himself nominated in. That wasn’t all as not long after, Jelly Roll appeared on American Idol as a mentor for the contestants. With the last few days somewhat of a whirlwind for the singer, he recently praised his success as American Idol fans called for the show to make him a judge.
