    Keith Urban is the sole judge from the Season 12 judging panel to return to American Idol for Season 13 in 2014! He announced the news yesterday (August 1).

    At the end of Season 12, original judge Randy Jackson quit. Divas Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey peaced out after one season of infighting. Longtime producer Nigel Lythgoe was bounced. Urban's fate was up in the air but he announced via Twitter that he will be back!

    Urban expressed joy at giving Idol another go. See his tweet below:
