Adam Lambert will be a guest judge for the “American Idol” auditions in New York today.   Adam is filling in for Keith Urban, who is taking time off due to the death of Nicole Kidman’s father, Dr. Antony Kidman.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Dr. Kidman, 75, died suddenly on Friday after suffering a suspected heart attack at a restaurant located inside a Singapore hotel.   He was in Singapore visiting Nicole’s sister Antonia and his grand children who live there.

Our prayers continue to be with their family.


Keith Urban Takes Arena Break at The House of Blues

Earlier this week, Keith Urban and his fellow “American Idol” judges were in New Orleans scouting talent, when Keith Keith got a hankerin’ to play. Instead of the usual arenas and stadiums, a small intimate venue provided the backdrop for a night many fans won’t forget. With the help of a local radio station, the super star gave away 350 free tickets to The Parish at House of Blues. According to The Times-Picayune newspaper, Keith ran his 75 minute set with the energy of an arena show, but the intimacy of a dive-bar gig…inviting an audience member on stage to perform “We Were Us” with him.

“This could work very well, very averagely or be a complete disaster,” Urban said by way of disclaimer. “I’m happy either way.”

Luckily for all involved, Juliet Kalifeh from Brisbane is an aspiring singer, and didn’t disappoint. The 14-song set included all his hits along with an arena-worthy encore.

I just hope the fans truly appreciate seeing a performer such as Keith Urban in such a small intimate venue. There’s nothing like it.

All of you Keith Urban fans will be happy to hear, you’ll be able to see him every week again next season. “American Idol” will return for the it’s 14th season and Keith will sit alongside Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr. again to judge the singing competition.

“Jennifer, Keith, Harry and Ryan are the very best in the business at what they do, and I’m thrilled that they are returning to American Idol for another season,” said David Hill, senior exec vp, 21st Century Fox. “Each brings unique qualities and expertise to the team, but they all share the same passion for helping undiscovered singers achieve the American dream.”

However, “American Idol” will most likely see a format change in the upcoming season, switching from a two-times a week format to just a single day in order to recover recent ratings drops.

Are you excited to see Keith return to “American Idol?”
