Keith Urban American Idol judge deal on deep negotiations
Keith Urban may be the next ‘American Idol‘ judge. The singer is in talks to join the judges’ panel. According to TMZ, he hasn’t signed the deal yet, but he’s in deep negotiations for the job.
Nicole Kidman’s husband is in the final negotiation stages with producers to take the third judging spot on the show.
Keith will be replacing Randy Jackson. His salary? Maybe $3-4 million. That’s half what Nicki Minaj is expected to earn. Not to mention a fraction of Mariah’s $18 million paycheck.
Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj have already signed to replace Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler on the show.
TMZ reports that Idol wants to have four judges on the panel. The fourth judge is expected to be another man.
