Luke Bryan “Inspired” By ‘American Idol’ Contestants
When American Idol returns in March there will be three new judges at the table: Luke Bryan, Lionel Richie, and Katy Perry. Luke Bryan has been hitting the road with the show watching auditions and seeing these singers bare the souls to them in the hopes of achieving stardom. For Luke Bryan, that’s nothing short of inspiring.
“My biggest surprises are how there’s still hidden talent in the world. There’s still voices out there that are paired with these unassuming characters. [They] walk in and the second they open their mouth it’s like God has made that person a singer. And that’s what’s inspiring about trying to find the next American Idol. It’s those people that truly … they walk in and the canvas is blank and then the second they open their mouth you can visualize and see everything. You can see a future for them, and it’s pretty inspiring.”
It is inspiring if you think about it. It takes a lot of guts to stand before these three music icons and sing if you are an unknown singer. I admire their courage and if you think that’s an easy thing to do, try it. Bryan and the gang are not out to embarrass and humiliate people auditioning like they did in the past. They want to find actual real talent and propel them into superstardom. That’s the point of the show, right?
