Keith Urban: I Have No Information On My American Idol Fate
Keith Urban is still unsure if his American Idol journey will continue. The country singer admits he is in the “same boat” with fans when it comes to knowing anything about the season 13 judge’s panel.
"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," he told the Associated Press in an interview on Tuesday. "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."
Earlier this month, Urban said he would love to return to the judge’s panel. “I would. I mean, I literally enjoy coming to work every day, and that’s a rarity,” he said.
Urban appeared on season 12 along with Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Randy Jackson. Jackson announced his departure earlier this month.
Among the many rumors surrounding the Idol shakeup is American Idol alum Jennifer Hudson signing on as a judge. Idol bosses reportedly plan to approach season 1 winner Kelly Clarkson next, and either season 2 runner up Clay Aiken or season 8 runner up Adam Lambert.
