Keith Urban is back to work on his upcoming album, Fuse, and has set its release for Sept. 10.  As far as I know. Asked if he’ll be back on American Idol Urban said:  “I have no official information of anything.” “I’m pretty much in the same boat as everybody else here with the rumors that have been floating around. I don’t know anything more about what’s happening next season. It was like this before I signed on … so it’s not unusual for the Idol folks to be in this place of figuring out what they want to do, then they always pull it together.” Rumor has it they’re thinking about replacing the whole crew, season 12 panelists Urban, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj are not expected to return.  Randy Jackson officially announced his departure a few weeks ago. Urban went on to say:  “I did as much as I could in the environment we had.”  “I love artists. I love the beginnings of artists when all they’ve got is raw talent and nothing else. They’ve got no star power, just nothing going on but just this raw talent that’s just beautiful to see, and you look at them and just go, ‘All you’re needing is life experience … because you’ve got everything else ready to go.'”
