Keith Urban has finally addressed the rumors about being asked to judge American Idol.
Speaking on an Australian radio show, Keith confirmed he has been asked, "They did reach out to us. But they have been reaching out to a lot of people, so I think they are just figuring out which way they are going to go too." If he was offered the job, would he take it? Keith had this to say, "All I can say right now is that I'm trying to make an album and it's strange how these opportunities all come in one big fell swoop. But my priority right now is to just make a record and that really has to lead the charge for me."
