Luke Bryan is one step closer to being a judge alongside already announced panelist Katy Perry on the ABC re-boot of "American Idol."
Lionel Richie and Charlie Puth are also rumored to be under consideration as panelists.
"American Idol" ran for 15 seasons on FOX before ending in 2016, with Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, Harry Connick, Jr. as judges.
The revival is expected to premiere on ABC in 2018.
Series host Ryan Seacrest recently confirmed he will be returning.
