Luke Bryan on American Idol Season 19

‘American Idol’ Season 19 is in full swing. The show aired their first Top 24 results on Sunday night and the second on Monday night.

Judges Katy Perry and Luke Bryan were in the arena judging the ‘American Idol’ hopefuls while judge, Lionel Richie was tuning in from home. He was absent from the arena because he was exposed to COVID-19 and had to quarantine.

On Monday night’s show after a number of hopefuls performed and made it through to the Top 24, Luke Bryan had to get up and do a little performing himself. The New Kids on the Block hit song, ‘The Right Stuff’ started playing and Luke couldn’t help himself but try to mimic the iconic dance the 5 guys perform every time they get on stage. He not only tried doing the dance, but he also sang along with the infamous 80’s hit.

“I can’t believe I remembered the words to that,” the country singer confessed while judge, Katy Perry looked on.

Unfamiliar with the NKOTB dance? Check out The Right Stuff official music video featuring Donnie Wahlberg, Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight, Danny Wood, and Joey McIntyre.

What Have the NKOTB Been Up To in 2021?

The New Kids on the Block went on a nationwide tour for the “Mixtape Tour” in 2019. The guys were planning their fan cruise that they host every other year inviting all the blockheads to come celebrate with them. When the pandemic hit, they were forced to cancel their 2020 cruise. They also had scheduled one tour stop in Boston alongside Aerosmith, but that was also canceled due to COVID-19.

However, in place of their 2020 cruise, the guys and their management got together and created a virtual cruise for all their fans to take part in! It was an amazing experience. Fuller House and Blockhead Andrea Barber also took part in the virtual cruise.

Band member, Donnie Wahlberg stays connected to his fans via social media. The 50 year old singer/actor wrote, “Blockheads, we will be together again soon. Til then, my heart is in your hands. #loveeternal #BHLove #Believe #love #Blockheads 🙏🏼❤️🤖❤️🎉”

Jonathan Knight is the host of HGTV’s The Farmhouse Fixer. He lives on a farm in his private life and loves fixing up homes.

Farmhouse Fixer airs on HGTV Wednesdays at 9pm.
