Say hello to ‘American Idol’ ‘s first judge from the world of country music.  Keith Urban has reportedly accepted an offer from FOX to join the talent competition alongside newly added Mariah Carey and veteran Randy Jackson.

It was no doube fellow country superstar Blake Shelton’s success on the NBC’s ‘The Voice’ that inspired FOX producers to think outside the box and add some variety to it’s own panel.  And it was likely Shelton’s presence that convinced Keith to take on this new role.  His salary is still undisclosed.

‘American Idol’ may not be done with it’s acquisitions.  Nicki Minaj in still in the running to take the fourth seat at the table.

Season 12 of ‘American Idol’ will begin in January 2013.
