And though Bryan is happily married, he seems to have other motivations for finding the best talent on Idol -- his playful feud with The Voice's Blake Shelton.
"I think [you should bet] a farm!" Perry suggested of what Bryan should gain from discovering the next country superstar. "Like a ranch!"
"Not the whole farm!" Richie interjected.

American Idol will air on ABC in 2018.
