Keith Urban Joining American Idol

It looks like another judge is in the books and it is Keith Urban according to The County Vibe.

Sources have confirmed exclusively to The Country Vibe that Keith Urban has accepted an offer from American Idol to sit at the judges table next to Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and a rumored fourth judge that will likely not be Randy Jackson for the upcoming season of the show.

The Hollywood Reporter reported last week that Enrique Iglesias was and still is being considered as a fourth judge and that Randy Jackson would likely be moved into more of a mentoring role, similar to Jimmy Iovine. Sources tell The Country Vibe the Idol executives definitely wanted a judge from the country music world and it came down to Keith Urban and Brad Paisley.

    I really don’t think we need four judges. There is too much judge chat now. I do like Keith Urban joining the crew though. Keep it at three and move on.

  2. Cynthia C. says:

    These are great selections, but I was hoping that Clay Aiken would be selected as one of the new Idol judges.

  3. FINALLY SOMEONE GOOD….please no minage…you only need one good women judge and that mirah!!!
