Over the weekend, "American Idol" officially signed on their second judge for the reboot of Idol on ABC -- country megastar Luke Bryan. Luke will join Katy Perry on the judging panel. Apparently, Keith Urban had also been approached to come back as a celebrity judge as well since he served as one during the show's run on Fox, but nothing official has come out of it yet.
Keith DID say, though, that Luke can expect more of a turnout at his concerts now, since Keith noticed a definite increase in attendance after becoming a judge on the original version of the show.
It meant that more people came to our shows and got to check out what we do live, which is fantastic. This is all in addition to getting to be in peoples’ living rooms every week.
