Luke Bryan Celebrates “Bring Jelly Roll To Work Day” on ‘American Idol’

Jelly Roll is almost universally beloved these days. The “Need a Favor” singer is winning a lot of awards and giving a lot of electrifying speeches. And it looks like Jelly can count Luke Bryan among his legion of fans. The “Play It Again” singer said last year that “what Jelly Roll embodies and represents is something really, really special… You are just drawn to him.” The “Son of a Sinner” singer appeared on American Idol Monday (April 8) to mentor the second half of the Top 24 finalists. And Bryan does appear quite drawn to him in the photos he posted to social media.

Who Will Replace Katy Perry on ‘American Idol?’

Judge Katy Perry has said season 22 will be her last on American Idol. The “Hot N’ Cold” singer wants to redirect her focus toward her music career. And after seeing Jelly Roll as a guest on the show, some viewers have an idea of who could replace her.

“As much as I’ll miss Miss Katy …Can you join them next year!!” one viewer commented on X/Twitter. “You were amazing.”

Another fan wrote, “You are a natural!!!!! Katy replacement!!!!!!!”

Fans clearly love Jelly Roll’s authenticity, and they aren’t the only ones. Contestant Triston Harper was in awe meeting his “role model.”

The 15-year-old Alabamian earned a fan with his performance of “God’s Country” by Blake Shelton. “You are the youngest man with the oldest soul I’ve ever met in my life,” Jelly Roll gushed. “You can win this competition, young man.”
