The “That’s My Kind of Night” singer appeared on Sunday’s pre-taped “American Idol” episode, but Monday will be the competition show’s first live shows.
Paula Abdul is replacing Bryan for Monday’s “Idol” show. At this point, he is only expected to miss the one.
The musician was also set to perform at Sunday’s ACM Awards, but no official announcement has been made as to whether he will attend the awards show or perform.
