The 20th season of American Idol is officially underway. During Sunday’s premiere of Idol, judges Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan and Katy Perry kicked off the 20th season of the ABC singing competition show with a bang. Amid this Katy Perry talks about her fiancé Orlando Bloom’s friendship with fellow judge Luke Bryan.
“There’s a bromance going on” Perry said during a break between auditions according to People. “Yeah me and Orlando are slowly falling in love” said Bryan followed by Perry. Katy Perry also address their relation in meme language.
“Get yourself someone that looks at you the way Orlando looks at Luke”
“He talks about you now in the car all the time,” Perry said of Bloom. “It’s crazy. He’s like, ‘Luke’s such a good guy, isn’t he?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, he’s a sweet kid'”. Video chatting with Perry in between auditions, Bryan said “What’s up, homie?” “Sup, bro,” Bloom responded.
During another take, Bryan received a video message from Bloom, to which Perry “He’s so in love with you”. “I can’t even begin to tell you what a day I’ve had” Bloom said in the video message to Bryan. “I haven’t heard from my fiancé all day, but meanwhile, he sends video messages with hearts in his eyes to Luke” Perry complained. “It’s called love in Bloom” said Bryan.
The premiere episode featured an outstanding pool of talent from all walks of life, only intensifying the anticipation for this upcoming season. Back in August the Idol judges teamed up to film a hilarious call for auditions for season 20 which it included Bryan peeking from the shower.
This season, the judges will give out a new platinum ticket to a lucky contestant in each city: Nashville, Austin and Los Angeles. This ticket will not only get them to Hollywood, but will get them through the first elimination during Hollywood Week.
American Idol airs Sundays at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
