Country fans, breathe a sigh of relief! Keith Urban will indeed be returning to the ‘American Idol’ judging table for another season — and his friends Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick, Jr. will be joining him!

Auditions for Season 14 are currently underway, spanning coast to coast, from San Francisco to Portland, Maine. And for those hopeful singers who don’t see their city on the audition list, ‘Idol’ is again accepting video submissions.

Urban has never denied the possibility of returning to ‘Idol’ for another season, and even jokes that he’s negotiating for a bigger trailer for the upcoming season. After all, a U-Haul is pretty small and sparse for a country music superstar!

Trish Kinane, Executive Producer of ‘American Idol,’ speaks out regarding the confirmed judges panel, saying, “I am delighted that our Dream Team of Jennifer, Keith and Harry is back for ‘American Idol XIV.’ Their experience, humor and passion for new talent has made them one of ‘Idol’s’ strongest-ever judging panels, and coupled with the expertise and charisma of Ryan Seacrest, we are ready to get out there to find the best talent in America.”

The chemistry between Urban, Connick Jr., Lopez and, of course, Ryan Seacrest is undeniable, and they’ll light up the screen with their humor and expertise for yet another season.
