For most of the year, Bryan has kept busy continuing his job as a judge on season 19 of "American Idol," the fourth season of the singing competition to hold amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

In an interview with People, the 44-year-old opened up about the new protocols put in place and how it has negatively affected his judging style. He explained that things have gotten tricky because auditions usually get emotional.

Bryan noted that due to safety precautions, he and the other judges couldn't reach out to offer crying contestants a hug or put his arms around them to show them support, and that makes it quite difficult to connect.

The ABC singing competition recently made headlines during its 7th episode when one of the contestants named Funke Lagoke experienced a health scare and collapsed on-stage face-first. It was later discovered that she had suffered dehydration.
