Luke Bryan (American Idol 2 finale) OC: …potential of year three. 1:00
“I think as we got into the first year and America really started watching what we were doing and then now, just the talent level this year has been amazing. I mean, our Top 10 was really, really something special to watch. Every person that’s went home in the Top 10 has been a dagger to the heart. I think we’ve really set forth what our show is about now. It’s about uplifting this talent, bringing ‘em, encouraging them, and just making sure that when they walk in the doors of Idol, we’re gonna give ‘em great feedback and we’re gonna look after ‘em and treat ‘em as good as we can. Tat’s the main thing. Me, Lionel and Katy, we have to enjoy our role, we have to enjoy interacting together, and it’s so fun being up there with them in the trenches and stressing with them about who’s going through to the next round and stuff like that. So, I’m loving the show and looking forward to the potential of year three
