Country Vibe is confirming that Keith Urban has accepted an offer to be an American Idol judge.
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.
According to their source, Keith will earn $3 million to join Idol. I am perfectly cool with a panel made up of Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey and Keith Urban.
You’ve got Nicki, who will bring a current vibe and a relevance to the proceedings. As a bonus, she’s totally cray cray and will likely have no problem offering blunt critiques to the contestants. Her unpredictability could be a lot of fun.
Mariah is the legend. And as a superb singer and performer, she’s in a position to offer contestants sound advice on the technical aspects of performing.
Besides being HOT. Heh. Keith will represent a genre that’s played an important role on Idol. One of the show’s most successful alums is Carrie Underwood and there have been a slew of Idols, including Scotty McCreery and Kellie Pickler who have had success on the country charts. I’m surprised it took Idol this long to put a country person on the panel.
Now, for that 4th spot? Please move Randy Jackson into a mentoring role. He can hang out with Jimmy Iovine in the back. I would really love a relevant record producer to take that spot. But, I have a feeling they are going to go with a teen idol type such as Nick Jonas, to grab the youth demo.
