American Idol is still the highest rated singing competition show so i don’t get all the attacks. Xfactor debuted to half the rating that Idol gets. and The Voice ratings are down a few million. Fans still prefer Idol over the others. The Voice is all about the judges. What happened to the winners? They just disappear. At least Idol winners and runners up have careers.

Keith Urban will be a huge asset for American Idol. I’ll be watching for sure now that Keith will be on show.

I for one am looking forward to this season. I watched Keith Urban on the Voice in Australia and I think people will be pleasantly surprised at how knowledgeable he is about all genres of music. He is going to be a great addition and I hope people will give the show a chance. There seems to be some good changes in store. I will be watching!

Idol is so fortunate to have Keith Urban as a judge. He is a walking encyclopedia regarding all genres of music. He is highly intelligent, totally talented, very articulate, very handsome, and a fabulous entertainer. America is in for a very pleasant surprise in watching Keith Urban.

American idol, The Voice or XFactor?

How can anyone judge before they’ve given the show a chance. As so many have said above, Keith Urban was a miracle worker in Australia. He seems to really enjoy helping out entertainers and doesn’t get caught up with ego while doing it. Sitting Keith between Mariah and Niki will be very interesting. It isn’t as if he hasn’t had some experience with a diva. It’ll be very interesting.
