Everyone is ready to say goodbye to 2020, even Luke Bryan and Katy Perry! 

The American Idol judges appeared during ABC’s Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest on Thursday (Dec. 31) with a hilarious parody about 2020. 

In the clip, Bryan is seen seated at a piano with Perry laying on top. As Bryan plays, Perry adlibs lyrics about the past year.

“Is this six feet on your TV channel? Will we ever see a brighter day? 2020, you have sucked. 2021 will you kiss 2020 in the butt,” Perry sings as Bryan and fellow judge Lionel Richie laugh in the background.
