The American Idol judges stopped by Jimmy Kimmel to talk about the show and how they came to be part of it. Luke Bryan admitted that he was surprised that he was chosen to be an Idol judge. Apparently, it was Lionel Richie who mentioned Luke to the show's producers and suggested that he might be the perfect addition. "Unbeknownst to any of us, they asked me during my interview, ' Who would you consider?' And I said, 'Luke,'" Lionel explains. "They were putting it together, we didn't know if we were gonna be in or out, and...I said, 'Trust me, there is never a dull moment with Luke in the house.'"
