Keith Urban wants to stay on 'American Idol' as fellow judges leave
Amid reports of a complete shake-up at the judges table on “American Idol,” first-year judge Keith Urban announced that he wanted to stay on the Fox show.
At Wednesday’s final faceoff between Kree Harrison and Candice Glover, Urban told reporters that he would like to return as a judge next season.
“I mean, I literally enjoy coming to work every day, and that’s a rarity,” he told People Magazine. “I like being in a team and I felt that immediately, with [host Ryan Seacrest] and Randy [Jackson], particularly.”
But that team might be close to breakup. Last week Jackson announced his retirement from the show after being a mainstay for all 12 seasons. Soon after, Us Weekly reported Nicki Minaj will not return either.
