“I think people are going to realize just how dumb he really is when they see him on national television, in an environment where there’s no script,” Blake jokes. “But you’re also gonna see what a great, great, dude that guy is. I love Luke like a brother, I really do, but he’s just dumb.”

While American Idol will serve up some TV competition for The Voice, Blake admits he and Luke "had a lot of conversations" before the “Light It Up” singer said yes to Idol, suggesting he may have had something to do with Luke’s rumored $13 million paycheck.

“I’m sure the executives at ABC are really pissed at me right now for what they probably had to pay him to get him on that show. But good for you, Luke! Stick it to ‘em! I mean, Luke Bryan is not cheap. He looks it, but he’s not,” Blake jokes.

Watch Blake on The Voice Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC, and see Luke on American Idol beginning March 2018 on ABC.
