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.

“American Idol” is willing to pay big money for standing by the side of an eventual winner. Season 14 has added the American Idol True Believer Award and it will allow contestants who make it past a certain point each to designate one person who supported them above all else. That person could be the winning contestant’s relative, friend, mentor, co-worker, or a loved one who has helped them to achieve their dreams just by believing in them.

“True Believer.” Then, should that contestant win, their “true believer will also walk away with the $50,000 award, simply for believing someone they cared about could make it on the show. In case the winning contestant doesn’t choose a “True Believer,” the money will instead be donated to a charity chosen by “American Idol.”

Ryan Seacrest will be back to continue his hosting duties next year. Additionally, all three judges – Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez, and Harry Connick, Jr. – are expected to return. So far, no official announcement from “American Idol” showrunners has surfaced.

Scotty McCreery Returns to American Idol – VIDEO

Scotty McCreery returned to American Idol to play “Feelin’ It” on Thursday night (5/15). Check out the video of his performance above!

Scotty recently opened up about this home invasion that happened earlier this month saying that one of the men involved held a pistol to his head.

“The first guy in the room had an assault rifle, and he put that right against the sternum of the guy who opened the door,” says McCreery. “The main guy, who was casing the living room, he had a pistol to my head and a pistol at another guy’s head. It definitely puts your life in perspective when you’re staring down the barrel of a pistol.”

The armed men took wallets, cash and electronics during the home invasion, investigators said. No one was hurt.

Mikkail Jamal Shaw, 19, was arrested a few days after the home invasion after he turned himself into police.   He is charged with armed robbery and conspiracy.
