American Idol judges Luke Bryan, Lionel Richie, and Katy Perry have formed a close bond as they prepare for Season 22. This season, the judges visited each other's hometowns for auditions, which allowed them to learn more about each other. Bryan described the experience as being on a field trip. They visited Bryan's hometown of Leesburg, Georgia, where they were welcomed with a pep rally and parade. They then traveled to Richie's hometown of Tuskegee, Alabama, and planned to wrap up with a visit to Perry's old stomping grounds in Santa Barbara, California. The judges and host Ryan Seacrest confirmed their return for Season 22 back in July. Bryan expressed his confidence in the show's direction, stating that they had all worked together to get to this point.
