By Billboard

Luke Bryan has met his match! In an exclusive preview for Sunday’s (Mar. 17) new episode of American Idol, contestant Colby Swift wins over the judging panel with a charm that leaves the country star feeling like he’s looking in a mirror.

“Where’s Midfield at?” Bryan asks after Swift introduces his Texas hometown. “You know where Houston is?” the Idol hopeful deadpans. “Nowhere near there."

Bryan cracks up at the whip-smart response, turning to fellow judges Katy Perry and Lionel Richie to remark, “I don’t know if a kid has ever walked in here and been more me at 19.”

A straight-faced Swift doesn’t miss a beat, earnestly asking, “Were you good lookin’ back then?,” leaving a thoroughly charmed Bryan to crack, “I would’ve said something like that too!”

Watch the full clip below and tune in Mar. 17 and 18 to catch the final two audition episodes of the season.
