Keith Urban Talks American Idol Return

May 28, 2013 08:34 AM by Lisa Princ

Ever since American Idol fans learned that Randy Jackson would not be returning next season, we’ve all been wondering what would happen to the other three judges. While rumors have been circulating that the remaining judges were about to be fired, at least for Keith Urban, that does not appear to be the case. But is the Country music superstar going to return?

While many fans seem to agree that Keith Urban did a great job on the panel of American Idol this season, we have been anxiously waiting to hear if he will return next season. Recent rumors have claimed that Urban, along with Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey were all going to be fired after the season, but that has not happened – yet!

However, Keith Urban really has no idea what his future holds as far as Idol is concerned. “I have no official information of anything. I’m pretty much in the same boat as everybody else here with the rumors that have been floating around. I don’t know anything more about what’s happening next season. It was like this before I signed on. So it’s not unusual for the Idol folks to be in this place of figuring out what they want to do, then they always pull it together,” Keith recently told the press.

While Urban waits for the show to decide whether or not they want him back, he has plenty to keep him busy. Urban announced that his new album is set to be released on September 10, and he still needs to finish it up before he heads out on tour in July.

How do you think Keith Urban did as a judge on season 12 of American Idol? Was he a good judge? And would you like to see him return for season 13? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it so sound off in the comments and let us know.

    Keith Urban is a class act and an amazing and talented performer who is incredibly qualified to continue on as a judge.

    I think he did a good job and should be retained.
    I even enjoyed Nicki Minaj because she was honest with her judging.

    I hope Keith Urban does come back. Him and Randy Jackson were the best two judges this past season. I absolutely hated it when Nicki and Maria would fight and never cared the least bit for either one and hope neither of the two do not return. I definately hope Keith does come back. I don’t want to see the childessnish of Maria and Nicki anymorne.

    Yes he should return. Without Nikki sitting next to him isolating him and overwhelming him with her big mouth he would prove to be a great judge. Nikki has to go, Mariah has to go, too. Give him a decent panel of judges to work with and he will shine and add the variety and class that the place needs.

    KEITH URBAN is a perfect judge: critical in a kind way, knows music inside and out, people love him and certainly easy on the eyes. There is going to be a lot of people that are really going to be angry if he isn’t hired. He puts some fun in American Idol.
