Luke Bryan takes his new role as an American Idol judge very seriously.

The country superstar dropped by Good Morning America to reveal why he’s been losing sleep ahead of the season premiere.

“You don't expect all the emotions,” Luke said Tuesday (March 6) on GMA. “I mean, I have laid awake... worrying about, ‘Did I make the right decision?’ with some of these contestants. It’s so critical.”

The “Most People Are Good” singer adds he’s quickly learned how to say no to a contestant.

“It’s a little out of my comfort zone to just pick people apart, you know, but you have to, it’s what you signed up for,” he says. “I remember our first day on set... and when somebody doesn’t need to make it through, there’s no way around, you’ve got to say no. I’m like, ‘Oh god, I gotta tell ‘em no...,’ but then when you learn after 14-hour days of filming, you’re like, ‘No! It’s time to get the next person in!’”

American Idol begins Sunday (March 11) on ABC.
