It's now official Keith Urban will return as a judge for season 13 of American Idol. That confirmation came down just moments ago from Fox Entertainment Chairman Kevin Reilly who said "He did a great job on the show, fans loved him and you can see how much he loved the doing the show."

Now it's up to the panel to find out who will replace the other three judges Randy Jackson, Mariah Carey, and Nicki Minaj who all left after this season.

Reilly told reporters that those reports about Fox having discussions with Jennifer Lopez to return to the show are -- believe it or not -- true. Also true: the reports that Jennifer Hudson, Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am and super-producer Dr. Luke are names that have been considered and discussed.
