The Sad Quest for a Country-Singing 'American Idol' Judge
The long-running talent show badly needs a charismatic Nashville talent on its roster, but may have to settle for the blandest of the bunch: Keith Urban.

you have got to be kidding!!
Keith Urban is anything but bland. If you call real heart and soul and caring - bland - then Keith is bland. He is a wonderful entertainer with music that touches your heart.
What Idol needs is to stay off the air for a longer time and then come back with judges who carry some clout the way that Simon did. If they think that getting someone like Minaj to judge is going to help them, they are sadly mistaken.
The show is not about the judges, it is about the talent. Americans hardly knew Simon but he won us over with his confidence and knowledge.
If the judges are the stars of the show, Idol will certainly fail and fade away. Idol was the first of its kind and it should go back to its original format - to find a "star".
Obviously you are not a Keith Urban fan - do yourself a favor a get to know him. I saw him on Saturday and had a fabulous time with an entertainer who is fully aware of how hard you work for your hard earned money and always gives 100%. Keith always puts a smile on my face - what more can I ask for.

Nobody should be called a idol. The bible says to not worship any idol.also nobody should be called divine or diva that is should be reserved for jesus only.
