Beverly Hills - Keith Urban is coming back to American Idol.

Fox chairperson Kevin Reilly on Thursday confirmed the return of the country music star to the talent competition.

But Reilly was quiet on who else would sit at the judges' panel next season.

The departures of Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Randy Jackson were announced weeks ago.

Reilly says the goal is to recruit "comfortable" judges and refocus attention to the contestants.

The ratings of American Idol sagged last season. It returns in January. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
