Ever since American Idol fans learned that Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj, and Mariah Carey would not be returning next season, we’ve all been wondering what Keith Urban‘s fate was, as well as who else could possibly join the judging panel. Now, rumor has it that the show is seeking to add Jennifer Lopez back to the panel, as well as bring Keith Urban back for the new season!
While many fans seem to agree that Keith Urban did a great job on the panel of American Idol this past season, there has been no official word on whether or not the Country star would be returning. However, in a recent interview, Ryan Seacrest may have just let the cat out of the bag!
When asked by Taste of Country about Keith Urban returning to the hit singing show, Seacrest gushed about how much he loved Urban, and then added: “I think, based on what I have heard, the audience that watches American Idol is going to be very excited about the panel that we’ve put together for this Season 13.” While that may not have been an official confirmation, it sure sounds like it to us, especially since the majority of viewers loved Keith Urban on the show.
As for the rest of the panel, rumor also has it that Jennifer Lopez may be coming back, and is in talks with the show. According to a report from the Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer Lopez is interested in a return, if the price tag is good enough. The site claims that her manager is trying to work out a deal with the show.
