Keith Urban: I Want to Stay on “Idol”

Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — There have been a lot of shake-ups at American Idol lately, but Keith Urban doesn’t want any part of it.

“I would [love to return],” the judge told People magazine on Wednesday. “I mean, I literally enjoy coming to work every day and that’s a rarity.”

These days, question is, who will his colleagues be? Last week, Randy Jackson announced that this season will be his last and Nicki Minaj’s time on the show may be winding down as well. But, as season 12 comes to a close, Urban, 45, had nothing but nice things to say about his time on the panel.

“I joined an ensemble like this in the same way I joined a band,” he said. “I like being in a team and I felt that immediately, with [host Ryan Seacrest] and Randy, particularly.”

Thursday night’s show was the last time this particular panel will be together, as they crowned Candice Glover the winner.

“It’s funny, I think everybody is judging,” said Urban, who performed “A Little Bit of Everything” on Thursday night’s finale. “Everyone at home is judging us, judging them, judging everybody.”
