Luke Bryan Reacts to American Idol's Renewal on ABC

Luke Bryan has job security.

The country superstar will return for a second season of American Idol on ABC alongside fellow judges Katy Perry and Lionel Richie, and he tells CMT’s Cody Alan “good things are happening.”  

“I’ve had people come up to me saying it’s a big deal, man, when you can get a show picked up a second year,” Luke says.

The “Most People Are Good” singer adds he and his co-judges are hitting a stride.

“We’re starting to [have] chemistry as judges. And obviously [Ryan] Seacrest…I mean, he’s just a pro,” he says. “But then when you look at the contestants—our top 10 and our top 7—it’s really a contestant-driven show. And if we can put contestants on there that (make) people want to tune in and rally behind, it makes the show even more special.”
