Keith Urban Makes His Debut as a Judge on 'Idol' Tonight
‘American Idol’s two-night return is this evening with judges Keith Urban, Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Randy Jackson. Keith likes singing competitions because as a child in Australia he did three of them. He says it’s often the negative people who say you can’t do it that really fuels the fire.
The other judges say we’ll see Keith on the show in a way we may not know him – he has a very dry and sarcastic wit. Ryan Seacrest calls it ‘diffusing humor’ and Mariah Carry said it relieves you when things get tense.

Speaking of Scotty, he’s a huge Elvis fan and he told me his best behind-the-scenes moment on ‘Idol’ was when Priscilla Presley came to the show and told him, ‘Elvis would have loved you!’ Scotty said it was the coolest compliment he’s ever gotten in his life!
