'American Idol' Judges Officially Announced
After months of speculation, FOX has announced what we already knew; judges Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick, Jr. and Keith Urban will be “American Idol's” Season XIII dream team.
Rounding out the team will be longtime host Ryan Seacrest and alum Randy Jackson, who will return as in-house mentor rather than judge.
Lopez simply tweeted, “#IDOL2014TheRemix,” while Connick, Jr., a former mentor, said he was “honored” to be joining the show.
Urban couldn't contain his excitement. “I think this season of 'Idol' is gonna be a blast. New team, new energy and a whole new field of artists to be discovered and given a chance!”
