These two, along with Katy Perry, will be the new judges for the American Idol reboot and made their first stop for auditions last week in Nashville, according to a press release.

The chemistry is quickly rising with these judges, even though they haven’t known each other for that long. Or have they?

“[Luke’s] one of those guys you meet and you swear he’s been a part of your life forever,” says Richie, in a release. “I’m going back to check my yearbook. I’m going back to check The Commodores; I know he was in the band somewhere, he’s got that personality.”

Check out some footage of Luke at the piano below.
