Bryan returns as an Idol judge for the fifth consecutive season alongside Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. 

He recently opened up about the bond he shares with his Idol cohorts and admitted that they’ve grown closer over the years. 

“The more comfortable we get we know how far we can take joking with one another. I think the fans at home really want to see us having fun. They want to feel that we’re enjoying the moment, too,” he said via Showbiz Cheat Sheet. “It’s so fun sitting at that judging table because you never know if the next Jennifer Hudson is going to walk in or the next Carrie Underwood.”

The reigning ACM Entertainer Of The Year recently spent some time with his family, including his mother, LeClaire, wife, Caroline, and their two children, Bo and Tate, while in Las Vegas. 

“Got the whole crew here,” Bryan wrote. ”It’s been an amazing week. @linabryan3 and @leclaire.bryan been shopping like crazy. Another great week @resortsworldlv.”
