Keith Urban Catches Flight to the States for 'American Idol' Taping Tonight!

Keith Urban Catches Flight to the States for 'American Idol' Taping Tonight!

Keith Urban arrives at the airport to catch a flight out of town on Wednesday (April 2) in Sydney, Australia.

The 46-year-old entertainer is scheduled to sit in the judge’s seat on tonight’s American Idol episode! Be sure to tune in to FOX to catch the final 8 perform live.

“When I got the call from Tim about playing a solo on ‘Highway Don’t Care,’ that’s just one of those magical little moments, you know?” Keith said about his hit song “Highway Don’t care”. “When I heard the song I went, ‘God, this is a great song,’ and I heard it before Taylor was on it. The first time I heard the whole thing completed was on the radio, and it sounded amazing. I just thought, ‘Gosh, I think this song’s gonna do really well.’”

    That is a LONG flight back to L.A. to then have to do an immediate taping. Looks like Keith has gone a little blonder again, too, on his hair. It looks a lot better than the darker look he has had lately. He looks hot as always :) Nicole is one lucky lady!

  • maclen

    Yes, the orb WILL fly back and forth from the US to Oz…all 17 hours both ways for a total of 34 hours…weekly…when kidman says he has to. In most of the photos he looks “out of it”…blank faced…no doubt ready to crash on the plane for more than half a day’s flight. Kidman’s got the orb on a very short…and firm leash. It seem there are clearly dudes who like that…or just don’t have the backbone to exert any resistance.

  • maclen

    The orb still gushing about playing “backup” on the Mcgraw/Swift duet…while his own music is becoming pretty forgettable and clearly forgotten. Not that “riding coattails” is anything new for the orb…but clearly being too superficial and shallow didn’t take him very far.

  • Irene

    What a handsome and talented. Maclen, what a sad, pathetic life you must live.

  • duh

    Right. His single is Top 5 on billboard. McGraw invited him to play on the song. Hopes to record a duet with Keith down the road. His words. You are a fountain of misinformation maclen.

  • Silly old bugger

    Is he seriously wearing jeans ripped at the knees?

  • FloraFauna

    Urban looks fine to me. How else are you suposed to look at the airport?

  • duh

    @FloraFauna: @FloraFauna: maclen has been caught on other KU threads purposefully lying that he was drunk or high in photos. Now he’s just ”out of it”. Whatever she says its to counteract the truth. maclen doesn’t want to believe Keith even flew out to Sydney to be with his family in the first place.

  • Oh dear

    @duh: you would be self-medicating too @duh if you were married to Kidman.

  • http://comcast Joni

    Nicole must make it worth his while or he wouldn’t do it !!! Keith also has his beautiful daughters he likes to be around !!! You wouldn’t know what love is maclan aka The Crazy One. You certainly know what hate is and it is about someone that you don’t even know, just baffles me !!! Go get some help !! This week is Keith a womanizer or gay maclan ??? You did say Nicole is a lesbian this week but a couple weeks ago you said she was having affair with her male co-star. I cannot keep up with you, please let us know what it is.

  • maclen

    @Oh dear:

    Actually I would describe it as the “numbing of the dumbing”. These two together couldn’t come up with an original or creative thought to save their dwindling careers. The fact that orb’s music is absolutely mundane and recycled drivel… pales in my disregard for his spineless and milquetoast personality.

  • http://comcast Patricia

    OMG. Keith is soooooooooo sexy !!!!!

  • http://comcast Patricia

    I also meant to say you are making comments duh and answering them maclan. Time for you to be taken to the Loony Farm.

  • duh

    @maclen: It’s just too bad for you they have healthy thriving careers without you. Your multiple forums and blogs aren’t doing anything to hurt The Urbans which is why you think you need to post your lies on Jared. Oh dear is suffering the same problem apparently.

  • Phony Joni aka Patricia

    I am known as The Obsessed One…..Joni
    and I secretly lust after Nicole and Naomi
    I am actually a big, fat phony
    and most of my comments are absolute balone
    but oh how I love NICOMI

  • 1urbanfan27

    My sweet, beautiful Keith…

  • 1urbanfan27

    @maclen: It’s NOT because he likes it…

  • 1urbanfan27

    @Silly old bugger: I love those jeans… :)

  • oh cynical_gal

    You aren’t anything to Keith but a name given to security.

  • sunni

    Maclen, you will answer for all your hate one day, to the one that matters. 1urbanfan27 you are still dreaming, I see. What a life you lead.

  • KUNK are going to HELL

    @sunni:If you are referring to the seven deadly sins, KUNK have it well covered:

    Lust (for same sex partners)
    Gluttony (for botox)
    Greed (for money)
    Sloth (emotional apathy towards the girls)
    Wrath (rage toward house hold staff/film crew)
    Envy (of other artists successful careers)
    Pride (inflated sense of one’s importance)

  • sunni

    @KUNK are going to HELL: Ahhhh… throwing stones, are we? Tisk Tisk. Check out what they do for others. What have YOU done?

  • duh

    @sunni: Don’t worry sunni, the skeptics have said the same spiel for years. She just outed herself as one of the nutbags that used to post on E. Just goes to show how inneffective they are.

  • KUNK are going to HELL

    I’m sure KUNK performing PR under the guise of “charity work” fits neatly into the seven deadly sins.

  • sunni

    @KUNK are going to HELL: The one who matters knows if it’s coming from their hearts or not. You don’t get to the The judge. Check your own backyard, fool.

  • KUNK are going to HELL

    @sunni: what the HELL are you talking about, fool?

  • Maclen

    “Maclen, you will answer for all your hate one day, to the one that matters.”

    Well, considering that I’m an atheist I won’t be dreading that day. Seems many are gung ho on worshipping “false idols”…and most ridiculously…”American Idols.” There are obviously also MANY on these threads who are quite “defensive” over a very mediocre actress and lackluster country warbler. Constant failures will do that the their followers.

  • 1urbanfan27

    @sunni: :)

  • sunni

    @Maclen: well Maclen, thank you. That explains everything. You will definitely burn someday. Keep up the good work and you might get there faster.

  • maggie

    Keith is looking good, love the longer blonder hair. He was also looking good and acting feisty on Idol tonight. He must have had a nice visit with the family and gotten plenty of rest on the plane.

  • Sally

    @1urbanfan27 aka cynical_gal aka breathingmusic72

    The only thing you are too Keith is a pain in the butt to his security. They’ve got your number and they are watching you. Keith goes to Australia to see the wife that he loves and the children that he loves. It just kills you to hear he’s totally in love with his family. I’m sure before he left he wrote out some love letters for Nicole to read every night until they are back together again.

  • Oh dear

    @sunni: uh oh, it seems a religious nutter is trolling JJ.

  • Love letter to Nic

    Dear Nic,
    I love your trout pout
    I love your puffy cheeks
    I love your silicone breasts
    I love your scrawny ass
    From Keith.

  • maclen

    @Oh dear:

    “uh oh, it seems a religious nutter is trolling JJ.”

    Ha…no one EVER expects the “Spanish Inquisition” in the JJ boards!

  • 1urbanfan27

    @Sally: You are a deceitful liar…His security NEVER bothers me…Never has…And I’ve been plenty close…You’d be surprised…And the “love letters”…HE knows who writes the letters…He has stacks…Just another case of the same ole…Same ole…

  • 1urbanfan27

    @Sally: Why so invested in a “celebrity couple”, Ahem…Sally?

  • Sally

    @1urbanfan27

    Why not be invested. I happen to like the couple whereas you all hate them. All except you who has been spreading lies about your relationship with Keith for years and years. Nothing I’ve stated is a lie, everything that you post is. Oh right Keith just keeps stacks of love letters hanging around. It just hurts to see a man in love doesn’t it, don’t lie.

  • sunni

    1urbanfan27 etal the other names she has posts things that any one of us could say if we were to follow every interview and article Mr. Urban has ever done. She’s just got a bit of crazy mixed in there and enough to make herself believe that she had some type of relationship with the man of her dreams. That is all he is to her- a dream. We don’t buy it 27. Never have. Never will.

    @Maclen:

    Your one post has made everything clear.

  • http://Yahoo lizzie

    @Maclen:

    Thanks for making everything clear. Certainly, there are atheists who survive w/o spewing hatred toward others daily. Maybe you should join ‘Atheists Anonymous’.

  • m

    That’s a good point actually. Orb fans ARE like religious fanatics…irrational and dellusional. They actually believe christ rose from the grave…and so surely orb fanatics actually believe orb’s dead career can rise from the grave. Clearly.. orb “parting” his live show crowd is ALOT easier than Moses’ parting of the Red Sea…orb’s live show crowds arent that big any longer. Perhaps if they all pray really hard…they can get Idol ratings to rise…you know…like Jack’s Beanstock…oops sorry….WRONG fairytale.

  • duh

    @lizzie: maclen is not an a$$hole because she’s an atheist, or claims to be. She’s an a$$hole because she’s an a$$hole as her latest posts clearly show.

  • 1urbanfan27

    @Sally: NO…It doesn’t… :)

  • 1urbanfan27

    @sunni: YOU are a typical bully…And YOU are the one with ALL the names…I use only one here…You are also VERY misinformed…And have been for quite some time…But the one who matters is the one who knows…And HE knows…And that’s all that matters to me…What you think or believe matters not…Doesn’t change a thing…

  • maclen

    So back to the Idol front. The orb is once again “pwnd” by the voting viewers. Just as they previously eliminated a singer whose performance orb simply “loved”…and even “guaranteed” would be returning the following week…they’ve struck again. Last night orb thought this about Sam Woolf’s performance…

    “The great thing is you are getting better every week. You’ve been working on this I can tell, you are getting looser in between the lines. Let it be soulful. I’m really happy with where you are headed.”

    http://www.celebdirtylaundry.com/2014/american-idol-recap-4214-season-13-top-eight-perform-idoltop8/

    …only to have woolf voted in LAST place by the viewing voters…and off the show. And of course, the fact that this inane group of judges in the end ‘saved” woolf…and that they were responsible for having chosen him in the first place… tells you they are simply compounding their ORIGINAL mistake. Which answers the simple question…poor judges…picking poor performers…equal poor ratings.

    @ maclan aka The Crazy One: On one of your comments you say that I lust over Nicole Kidman. LOL. I am sure happy that Keith Urban lusts over her though. I love a happy marriage. I know the thought of them being happy just throws you deeper in your insanity. Sorry The Crazy One Keith adores his family.

  • http://comcast Teri

    OMG Keith is so, so sexy. I don’t know what he does to come across that way , what ever it is, it sure works.

  • http://yahoo Lizzie

    @Teri:

    I think he’s immensely talented and handsome; but above all, I find him a gentleman with very good manners and a kind demeanor. In this day and age, these attributes are hard to find. Instead we have those who think making up names and posting immature comments make them look witty and intelligent.

  • Reality

    @1urbanfan27:

    What people here think is all that matters to you. If you knew Keith, and he was all that mattered to you, you wouldn’t post here. Sadly,, for you, Keith won’t let you in so you must use JJ to communicate your “love”. Why don’t you text him? Surely you have his cell…. ;)
