Keith Urban will return as a judge on the next season of American Idol, and at least two more judges will be added to the panel following the departure of Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson at the end of last season.
Fox chairman Kevin Reilly said that possible judges for the upcoming season include Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Hudson, will.i.am and Dr. Luke, according to the Associated Press. He explained that Fox's goal is to find judges who are good at the job and that the network aims to refocus the attention of the show on the contestants.
American Idol will return for its 13th season in January 2014.
