Keith Urban Confirmed as New American Idol Judge
Well, it looks like it’s finally a done deal. Keith Urban will be one of the new judges for American Idol. It has officially been confirmed by the Fox network.
For the last few weeks rumors have been rampant as to who the new Idol judges would be, Mariah Carey was added to the lineup a few weeks back but that still left 3 places available. No one was sure if Randy Jackson would be back or not; he is as will be Urban and Nicki Minaj.
About a week ago Urban officially left the Australian version of “The Voice” sparking talk that he was indeed taking the Idol position. He admitted to having been approached by the show but would go so far as to say he was taking the spot.
Fox officials say they are glad to add him to their lineup and know that fans and contestants will fall in love with him. (Yes they will!!)
Reportedly Urban will be earning a $4 million pay check for the gig.
