Luke Bryan Wants An ‘American Idol’ Themed Super Bowl Halftime Concert

Luke Bryan said he wants to do an American Idol-themed Super Bowl halftime concert. Bryan made these comments while filling in for Kelly Ripa on Live With Kelly & Ryan on Monday (Aug. 1).

Bryan said he “couldn’t agree more” when reading a fan-submitted email suggesting he and fellow Idol judges Katy Perry and Lionel Richie perform together for a future Super Bowl halftime concert.

“That would be fantastic! I’ll introduce them,” Seacrest joked of the potential endeavor involving the three Idol judges. “That would be great to see what you guys would come up with, and with so many different genres of music. So, stand by for that!” he added.

All three judges have either previously performed or expressed a desire to perform at the Super Bowl. Perry headlined the halftime show in 2015, Bryan sang the National Anthem before the big game in 2017, and Richie told TMZ that he’d love to snag a future halftime show gig back in 2014.

Bryan also discussed working with Perry and Richie on Idol, telling Seacrest they’ve gone from “figuring each other out” to joking around and having anything they say become “an amazingly funny TV moment.”

“Anytime you’re clocking 12 hours a day with Katy Perry, I mean, I am certainly ready for anything that life can throw me!” Bryan shared.

In addition, Bryan said that people always ask him what Richie is like, responding, “He’s the number one human being on planet earth. He really is.’”

And while fans will have to wait and see if a future Super Bowl halftime concert with Bryan, Perry, and Richie materializes, Bryan recently snagged another impressive TV gig: hosting the 2022 CMA Awards alongside NFL player Peyton Manning.

“Being a part of such a historical night that honors my peers and Country Music is such a privilege,” Bryan explained of his latest endeavor.

“When I was asked if Peyton Manning was someone I would consider co-hosting with I didn’t hesitate. We have become great friends through the years and what he brings to the table is gonna make it even more of a blast. I know he’s been to the CMA Awards before, but he’s never been with me. Hey Peyton, I hope you’re ready for the night of your life!,” he said.

Bryan has also signed on to continue judging the next season of Idol with Perry and Richie.
