OFFSTAGE: Is Keith Urban Heading to American Idol?

Published on August 27, 2012 by CMT News

Keith Urban
(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and
out of the spotlight.)

Has Keith Urban gotten his golden ticket
to American Idol? He’s reportedly ready to sign on as a judge for the singing contest show that made Carrie
Underwood
and Scotty McCreery famous. After months of talk, gossip,
vague innuendo, speculation and wishful thinking, the Hollywood
Reporter
is saying Urban has agreed to take a judge’s seat on Idol for a salary of $3-$4 million.
(They don’t
name their source for that salary information, though, so that figure could be way off.) Other country stars who have been
considered for the invitation were Brad Paisley and Toby
Keith
. If everything happens the way it’s being talked about in the media, then Urban would join Nicki Minaj and Mariah
Carey (and possibly Randy Jackson, whose fate on the show is still undetermined) at the judges’ table. Since the auditions
are over, I guess the judges would head straight to the Hollywood round and would be at their designated seats when the show
premieres on TV in January, as it has for the last 10 years. Would this newly crowned group make you want to watch American
Idol
?
