American Idol judge and country crooner Luke Bryan gave us all a sneak peek of what’s coming our way March 3rd when Idol returns. When American Idol first came back in this reboot last year, we were skeptical. How could they recapture the old magic of the original. By the end of the season we feel like they did and we can’t wait for the next one.
Luke gave us a peek into what’s coming our way with a promo video on his Instagram account. It shows Luke, Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and host Ryan Seacrest traveling around the country in search of talent. Will they find some? I hope so or it’s going to be a short season. We have some hallmarks on the show already being shown in this clip. For example, Lionel in a panda costume, Luke with his ‘Aw, shucks’ grin, and Katy Perry rolling around on the floor. They also visited some troops on a base and had a poodle dancing for them. There was even one girl on Luke’s shoulders about to rope a steer. Wait…what? I know. It’s some crazy shenanigans in Americanidolworld. There are some obligatory shots of the contestants dancing around as well just to remind us that the show isn’t about Katy, Lionel, and Luke.
By the time American Idol’s last season ended, Mel and I agreed that it was one of the most fun shows that we cover. Though there were certainly many poignant moments and the sob stories were flying, it is also just a damn fun show to watch. Katy Perry in particular always makes the show interesting. What treasures have the coaches found for us this year? Will any of them live up to the awesomeness that is last season’s winner Maddie Poppe? We shall see. What I do know is that we can’t wait for March 3rd.
