We’re going to be right there with them on their search to find the 17th American Idol. We really can’t believe how far the show has come and can’t wait to see some of that raw talent Perry keeps gushing about.
Country mogul Luke Bryan dished on his thoughts about being a judge for his second season. Bryan told pop culture.com, “second season of Idol – I’m more excited this year because I know what to expect.” Bryan has joked in previous years about being scared about being a judge but with one season under his belt he feels unstoppable.
Swooner Lionel Richie talked to PEOPLE back in November and said that this season is going to be bigger and badder.
Are you going to tune in to Idol this season?
