American Idol fans aren't the only ones waiting to find out who will join the judges' table next season: Keith Urban is too!
"I have no official information of anything," the country singer told The Associated Press. "I'm pretty much in the same boat as everybody else here with the rumors that have been floating around. It was like this before I signed on ... so it's not unusual for the Idol folks to be in this place of figuring out what they want to do, then they always pull it together."

After news broke that American Idol may employ alumni as judges next season...
American Idol Season 12 runner-up Kree Harrison says she has no regrets about her time on the show, even deciding to let eventual winner Candice Glover close out the finale.
"People are asking me why I chose to go first and honestly, it was in the moment," she tells TVGuide.com. "I just said, 'Where do you want to go, first or last?' And Candice said last, and I don't care because I get to perform at the finale, whether I'm performing first or second."
American Idol is looking to replace the judges' panel with former contestants, according to a new report by Vulture.
Although both Fox and the companies that produce Idol have yet to comment on next season, sources tell Vulture that Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson have both been approached, and that Adam Lambert and Clay Aiken are on the shortlist as well.
Candice Glover and Ryan Seacrest

Candice Glover's victory on the reality singing competition show Thursday night comes after two major setbacks. She had previously auditioned in Season 9 and 11 and even made it to the Hollywood rounds, where she was then eliminated. She came back again in Season 12 and this time, made it to the very end.

"I always knew for some reason that it would happen if I kept going," she told reporters backstage after the finale. "At some point I said, 'American Idol obviously doesn't want me, so why would I go back?' But I found myself on the website, looking at auditions again and being determined. I just couldn't stay away."

Candice Glover, Kree Harrison
The American Idol finale Wednesday was trimmed to just one hour, allowing finalists Candice Glover and Kree Harrison three songs each, plus a performance by Carly Rae Jepsen (groan). With all that to cram in, host Ryan Seacrest wasted no time in getting to the performances — and we won't either.
Just one week after Randy Jackson announced he would not be returning to the judges table after this season of American Idol come reports that Nicki Minaj will also be vacating her post.
According to Us Weekly, an anonymous source said, "It's safe to say she isn't coming back to Idol. She's okay with it. She had a great time but was only going to do one season anyway." Fox would not comment on the report.
Though as popular as ever, ABC's top comedy Modern Family isn't always the most pleasant company — and in this week's episode (Wednesday, 9/8c), several of the more abrasive and prickly characters (notably, siblings Claire and Mitchell) confront their dark side with sporadically funny if sometimes predictable results.
