Last night, Keith Urban made is “American Idol” judging debut. Placed between Mariah “The Diva” Carey and Nicki “Eye Roll” Minaj, Keith played neutral Switzerland in the very awkward first 30 mintutes. In fact, it was hard to concentrate on the singing when all I could do was pity Keith for being placed in such an awkward situation.
The previews for tonight’s episode don’t look much more productive. In fact, during one heated moment Keith declares, “I feel like a scratching post.”
It’s too early to tell how these guys will actually “judge.” Keith still seems to be finding his nitch and trying to define exactly what he’s looking for. Randy has taken up ‘honesty is the best policy’… Even if it’s brutally honest. Surprisingly, Nicki and Mariah are still trying to spare some feelings.
Hopefully on tonight’s episode, we’ll get blown away by some amazing performance and just maybe we’ll get to really see how these four completely different folks will come together for one common goal of finding the next super star. I am glad they’ve finally thrown a country judge into the mix since the show has spawned more than a few country hopefuls…
What did you think of Keith’s “American Idol” debut?
