News: 8 Reasons Why Keith Urban Is Our Favorite American Idol Judge – In GIFs – The success of American Idol’s grand experiment – attempting to revive the judges’ panel in the show’s 12th season with the addition of Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey and Keith Urban – is debatable at best, with the feud between Carey and Minaj creating more of an annoying distraction than entertaining television. But the show definitely deserves two thumbs up for hiring Urban. The country crooner is hands down our favorite judge on the panel – and it’s not just because he’s easy on the eyes and has an adorable Australian accent. (Though those certainly don’t hurt.) Whether he’s dancing in his chair during a song or complimenting a finalist on the technical merits of his or her performance, sharing a private chuckle with BFF Minaj or keeping his mouth shut when Minaj, Carey and Randy Jackson are all shouting over each other, Urban is our go-to guy for a calming presence during the craziness that is American Idol.

The 47-year-old comedian and his 27-year-old professional dance partner were eliminated during week seven of the competition on Tuesday, Apr. 30, after feeling “berated” by the judges. “We’re sad . . . but it’s okay,” Dick told reporters after being sent home. “We are proud of what we did here.” How did he fight back tears? “By clenching my jaw! If it starts going it won’t stop, so I was fighting it!” he said. “We wanted one more week. Deep down we wanted one more week.

    Kris debuted another new original song at his 2nd NYC show tonight. It’s called “All We Need Is This Love”

    waiting on video :)

  • girlygirl

    and as a bonus, here’s video of a very jazzy version of “Monster” that they did tonight, complete with a bit of “Hit the Road, Jack” on the end

    Kris is really good at re-arranging songs, not just other people’s, but his own stuff, which really helps to keep them fresh. :)
