    I am a huge Keith Urban fan and think he would do great on the show, but i want to see him with a guitar in his hand and that won't happen on IDOL.


    i dnt think keith is a judge material,y is evry1 leaving american idol?if ryan seacrest also leaves then i'm so done wit the show!


    I have been a fan of keith urban from the first time i heard him sing, he is the best country singer out there,and i would watch anything that he is on,i do not like that Minaj,and do not think idol will do well with her on the judging pane.


    I think Urban is a good choice. Minaj-not so much. I am not a fan. Carey is an excellent choice. They need someone different in that third seat than Minaj. They should keep Randy there.


    Please, do not put Minaj on the panel. I think Keith Urban would be a good choice. What about Tony Bennett? It would be a nice change from the current crop of non talented and overpaid "entertainers".


    Ok, let's see--one freak (Minaj)--one talentless exhibitionist (Carey)--and now Mr. Urban who is probably a nice guy and decent singer but with NO knowledge of what sells. Since Cowell and now Jackson are gone, just admit that it is no longer about the performers on Idol but about the attention-seeking judges.
