Report: Luke Bryan Signs on To Judge American Idol

This... is looking promising.

Variety reports Luke Bryan has signed the dotted line to judge the new revival of American Idol.

While ABC has so far declined to comment on Luke’s deal, the country star is said to join Katy Perry as the show’s second judge.

Ryan Seacrest, the show’s original host, has also been confirmed to return to host the 2018 reboot, while there’s no word so far on who the third judge will be.

Luke, who will be honored October 18th as one of the CMT Artists of the Year, is gearing up to kick off his Farm Tour 2017 this week with Idol auditions set to begin next week.
