Is Luke Bryan Going to be Next ‘American Idol’ Judge?

American Idol

Online reports speculate that popular country singer, Luke Bryan, has been tapped to be the second of three judges announced for ABC’s revamped American Idol. Previously,  Katy Perry has been announced as a judge.

The singing competition previously aired on Fox for 15 seasons. It came to an end in 2016. This past year, ABC announced they would be reviving the show to premiere during the 2017-2018 season.

When the ABC version of the show premieres, it will feature three judges instead of the four that were standard during the show’s later years on Fox. While the number of judges may be changing, the host will not. Ryan Seacrest has confirmed that he will be back to fill his iconic role.

No word on who the third judge of the show will be. Auditions for the new season of the show are currently underway across the country. Also, keep following along to know the official premiere date for the relaunched American Idol.
