Keith Urban Dishes American Idol: I’ve Loved This Journey

May 16, 2013 02:13 PM by Donna W. Martin

Amid all the speculation and rumors regarding who will be returning as a judge for season 13 of American Idol and who will be moving on to other things, one judge has made his position clear. Keith Urban says he’s loved the journey and would gladly return as a judge for another season. Keep reading for more details.

Randy Jackson and Nicki Minaj may be leaving the Idol judges’ panel after the season 12 finale but Keith Urban isn’t ready to throw in his judging towel just yet. In fact, he’s enjoyed the experience and would like to come back for another season.

According to Access Hollywood, Urban described his judging experience on American Idol saying, “I love all of it and I’ve loved the journey – I really have.” He added, “I’ve loved watching the journey of all of these artists from these little audition moments we find them in and seeing them come all this way…it’s really extraordinary watching them evolve.”

When asked if  he would like to return for another season, Urban said, “I would. I mean, I literally enjoy coming to work every day, and that’s a rarity,” he told People.

It’s unclear, at this point, if Idol producers plan to ask Urban to return for another season. But if they do, we know he’s ready to come back.

    I think Keith deserves to come back as AI judge ….. not only is he fair but his critiques are helpful and supportive. He adds “youth” and “sincerity” to the show and he participates wholly. Bring Keith back! He’s the best judge we’ve had in a looong time!

    Keith was a great judge, had good, very good feedback and should most definitely return as a judge. Not sure we will be watching if he isn’t asked to return. Have been watching it fornext to Simon Cowell, we think Keith Urban an excellant choice for American Idol. Many people we talk to agree.

    Keith Urban is the reason I started watching Idol again. Keith made an excellent judge. Keith is so talented and it is nice to see how real he is. Keith wouldn’t know what a big ego is. We need Keith for that show.

    I didn’t watch American idol very much this year as I cannot stand Nicky. her voice made my skin crawl every time she spoke. I did like Keith Urban when I did watch. It is not the same without Simon and I am not sure they can revamp this show.
