Blake Shelton truly has a way with words. Especially when he’s talking about the ones he loves.

Blake recently sat down with “Entertainment Tonight” to give his thoughts on Luke Bryan officially joining “American Idol” and of course, he had some sweet thoughts.

“I think people are going to realize just how dumb he really is when they see him on national television, in an environment where there’s no script. But you’re also gonna see what a great, great, dude that guy is.”


He then said, “I love Luke like a brother, I really do, but he’s just dumb.”

In reality (TV, that is), Blake said he did talk to Luke about what it would be like to join the show, “I don’t know that he asked for my advice, but we had a lot of conversations about him joining Idol and, I guess in a way, I gave him my thoughts on it and about how I felt about it on behalf of him.”

And yes, Blake said he’s sure ABC isn’t happy with him, because they’re paying Luke $13 million to do the show, “I’m sure the executives at ABC are really pissed at me right now for what they probably had to pay him to get him on that show. But good for you, Luke! Stick it to ’em!”

“I mean, Luke Bryan is not cheap. He looks it, but he’s not.”

After weeks of speculation Luke announced his officially casting on “American Idol” in a field in the middle of nowhere, naturally.

Auditions for the show are officially underway.
