Keith Urban Weighs In On the Young Ages of This Season's 'American Idol' Contestants

Keith Urban is quite easy on the eyes as he steps out of his car at LAX Airport on Thursday evening (March 20) in Los Angeles.

The 46-year-old entertainer just weighed in on the general young age of this season’s top ten contestants on American Idol.

“The environment they’re in is not Little League, but the environments these guys and girls have come from, in many cases, is Little League,” Keith told USA Today. “We’re in the odd spot of having to figure out how to give them guidance when they’ve done this quantum leap from tiny little towns in America to the stage in Hollywood in front of millions of people.”

“We’re trying to make them artists who can make a record, find an audience, get on radio, put together a tour and have a long-term career. They’re all at different stages of digesting what that is and what it takes,” Keith added.
