Luke Bryan is connecting with a new generation of singers. It was announced several months ago that he would be a judge on the new season of American Idol. And Bryan definitely plans to take a new approach to the show. In a recent interview, he and his fellow judges discussed their plans for the upcoming season.
There to Encourage
American Idol is returning. And it’s going to have a whole new look.
Joining the upcoming season as judges are Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan. The show is currently traveling around the country taping auditions, both with and without the trio. But recently, the three got together to gab about the new format and what they hope to inspire as judges.
Specifically, when asked which of the three would take the role of Simon Cowell, all of them immediately denied any interest in the role
“We’re artists, not record company executives or critics,” insisted Luke Bryan. “These 15- and 16 year-olds are still a couple of years away, but you can see their promise, the potential. We’re not there to discourage them. If we word it wrong, they may give up all up.”
