This just in: Keith Urban Returns as a judge on American Idol

Keith Urban To Return To "American Idol." 

(Los Angeles, CA)  --  Keith Urban will be back to judge talent on the 13th season of "American Idol."  Fox Entertainment Chairman Kevin Reilly made the announcement during the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour on Thursday.  The country crooner is the only judge from "Idol's" last season returning to the panel.  While Reilly confirms Fox is having discussions with Jennifer Lopez to come back to the show, he says "there is no deal" as of now.  The network is reportedly tinkering with "Idol's" format in hopes of bringing back an audience that saw further decline last season.
