There have been rumblings of Luke Bryan claiming a judge seat on “American Idol” for a couple of months now, and it looks like those rumors are true! Multiple sources, including Variety claim that the “Light It Up” singer has agreed to join the show, although his deal is not 100 percent complete yet.
Auditions for the show are set to start in about a week and a third judge has yet to be announced.
According to TMZ, Luke is confirmed as a judge, and is expected to sign on within days.
The gossip site goes on to say that Luke Bryan wanted more money than American Idol was willing to commit to, but with try outs so close and only one judge confirmed, they decided to shell out the dough.
