American Idols has a surprise lined up for its season finale. Luke Bryan hinted that 'a special guest' might be joining him on stage during his performance.
He made the announcement on Twitter and told fans that they would not want to miss his final performance. 'Special guest maybe?' he teased.
As reported by Pop Culture, Bryan will be crowning the winner on Monday evening, and while fans are sad that another season came to an end, rest assured that talks for season 17 are already underway.
The lineup would not be complete without veteran show host Ryan Seacrest doing what he does best. Seacrest has been hosting American Idol since its premiere in 2002.
The regular selection of judges will return to their post, including Bryan, Katie Perry, and Lionel Ritchie. Bryan, in particular, is looking forward to it because it 'is very inspiring.'
In a backstage interview with Access, Bryan loves being part of the American Idol family. It inspires him to create music and helping other singers reach their dreams is a wonderful feeling.
Lionel only had one demand, and that was to work with Perry and Bryan again. "I wanted the exact same team because it's perfect, I got it down now. We know what we're doing," he explained.
"I'm having a blast. And it hits on all the emotions. That we get to go make albums, tour, and then we get to do this too."

Bryan's performance with the mystery guest isn't the only highlight in store for viewers. The three finalists - Gabby Barret, Maddie Poppe, and Caleb Lee Hutchinson - will give their all as well.
Apart from American Idol, Bryan's most recent projects include his album What Makes Country. He is also on tour, and his upcoming performances can be viewed here.
