Well, we've know about Randy Jackson's Departure from American Idol for a bit, but yesterday (05/14/13) on The Ellen Show, Keith made an American Idol News Announcement that I know many Keith Urban fans will love!

He's quick to get to the point, Keith Urban will be replacing Randy Jackson on American Idol as a permanent Judge of the 'Idol' Panel!

Not to offend and Nikki or Mariah fans....but Keith Urban has by far been the best judge so far anyways!

Keith's also got a new single coming to your radios soon and one cool thing about this happy, go-lucky guy is that he's not afraid to perform on the spot!

He gets down on the table in front of he and Ellen to start drumming out a beat and started singing some of his new song! He's awesome! :)
