Did Luke Bryan really just say that?

In a hilarious clip shared to American Idol‘s Twitter feed on Monday night (March 16), Bryan can be overheard telling his fellow judges about a manscaping mishap.

Looking across the judges’ panel at Katy Perry and Lionel Richie, Bryan says, “I over manscaped.”

Clearly taken aback by his comment, Perry questions his remarks.

“What,” she says with a horrified look on her face.

Bryan goes on to explain that his manscaping issue is “everywhere” and that it was done with a razor.

Perry and Richie both cringe, yelling “Ow!”

Just when you think he’s said enough, Bryan continues his story, telling his cohorts he “needs some powder.”

Watch it all unfold in the clip below.

American Idol returned for the second consecutive night Monday. The show began airing Hollywood week, showcasing many of the artists fans previously cheered on in the audition rounds.
