American Idol is set to go a little bit country.
Sources tell TMZ that Keith Urban is on the verge of signing a contract with the Fox competition. He would earn around $3 million for Season 12 and sit alongside Mariah Carey (confirmed for the panel) and Nicki Minaj (nearly confirmed).
A show insider also claims Randy Jackson is out, while a fourth judge reportedly WILL be included on the panel.
With the world of pop, hip hop and country now covered, it’s unclear from which genre that individual will hail from.
What do you think of Keith Urban? Good choice for American Idol?
