American Idol is heating up with the competition as more contestants are eliminated this week, counting down to the live episodes, which kick off the week of March 5th. Judge Keith Urban has truly fought for several of the contestants, even when the other judges want to send them home, as such was the case for Shuba Vedula. So, how does he deliver constructive criticism and still be the nicest guy on the judges’ panel? Keith says:“I think every person handles critiquing differently, and I’m trying to sort of get a feel for what the artist is comfortable hearing and what they’re not going to be comfortable in hearing. And something that’s just straight soul-crushing and not helpful to them, I just don’t see anything worth in it. I’m trying to give specific direction, if it’s something they can work on. It’s just my opinion, and it’s not to say it’s a fact. They can take it, they can leave it, but I try to deliver it in a way in which I’d like people to deliver it to me, or again, it’s really based on the person.”
