ABC is bringing American Idol back to TV in May and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Luke Bryan is on the short-list to join the reboot as a judge.
Along with Luke Bryan, ABC is also considering Lionel Richie and Charlie Puth for potential judges. Katy Perry is the only confirmed judge at this time.
Luke’s no stranger to giving advice to new talent on the small screen. Earlier this year, he joined Blake Shelton to be an advisor to his team on The Voice and he loved the opportunity to help new artists reach their dreams.
Country fans have their fingers crossed that Luke will be joining the panel of judges.
I really hope they pick Luke Bryan for American Idol, he'd be a great addition, and he's super well known and has great music.
