Keith Urban Says ‘American Idol’ Judges Have No Regrets About Using Save Early
When Joey Cook was sent home last week, fans started to wonder what would have happened if the three American Idol judges still had their save. Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr. used it in Week 2, to rescue Qaasim Middleton. Urban says he has no regrets.
"I think Qaasim, who we used it on, kept delivering for the next few weeks and kept getting through," he tells Taste of Country. "So I think it was a good use of the save.”
The eccentric Cook was a favorite, although maybe not the singer many predicted to go all the way. Some thought her performance of “My Funny Valentine” was not her best, and she wound up in the bottom two with Rayvon Owen. In the end, the Twitter save element saved Owen, for a third straight week.
Soon, not even fans will have a chance to save their favorite singer. The Big Machine Label Group CEO says he expects the Twitter save to be removed in the next two or three weeks. Wednesday night's theme is Arena Anthems. The show airs at 8PM ET on FOX. Taste of Country talks to Borchetta every Wednesday morning.
