Luke Bryan Reveals Three Singers Who Could Replace Katy Perry On “American Idol”

Luke Bryan Katy Perry American Idol

American Idol fans have been dying to find out who will replace Katy Perry next season, and Luke Bryan has finally revealed three contenders.

During an interview with Billboard on July 1st, Luke admitted that Disney has been talking to three superstar singers recently, and they all appear to be interested in the job.

“I’ve said several names,” he shared. “I think Pink has been in the talks, Miley Cyrus has been in the talks, Meghan Trainor has been in the talks.”

Katy joined the series in 2018 for Season 16, which happened to be the same year Luke and the third judge, Lionel Richie, began their tenures. The trio has remained a staple of the series ever since. But in February, Katy announced she was stepping down to focus on her music career.

Luke Bryan said that Katy Perry was “perfect for the job,” so it will be hard to fill her seat.

“I think they’re just working real hard to find somebody that can really come in and do the job that Katy did,” he said.

Disney Hasn’t Confirmed If Luke Bryan Will Be Back For Season 23 Of “American Idol”

While the country music star had inside information about Katy’s possible fill-in, he admitted that he doesn’t have information about his own fate with the show. As of now, he still hasn’t heard if he or his costars will be back for Season 23.

“It’s been interesting,” Luke said. “It’s been something Disney’s been really tightlipped about with me and Lionel and Ryan [Seacrest]. We currently haven’t heard what the story is on who’s coming back, and if Lionel and I are coming back.”

“I think Disney is just trying to figure out what they want to do,” he continued. “And we’re just kind of sitting back and waiting until they decide.”
