They’re back. Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr. return to the ‘American Idol‘ judges table for the 14th season. Ryan Seacrest also returns to host.

Jennifer, Keith, Harry and Ryan are the very best in the business at what they do, and I’m thrilled that they are returning to AMERICAN IDOL for another season. Each brings unique qualities and expertise to the team, but they all share the same passion for helping undiscovered singers achieve the American dream,’ said David Hill, Senior Executive Vice President, 21st Century Fox.’


I’m excited to see Keith again and although the judges chemistry was great last season, I don’t know how much longer Idol will last. Ratings have continued to decline and last season was the lowest yet. Season 14 may be Idol’s last. At least they’ll go out with a bang and the best judging panel since Simon Cowell left.

No word on whether or not Randy Jackson will be back to mentor the Idol hopefuls. His appearance last season seemed forced and at times looked uncomfortable. Jackson was like the college frat boy who graduated years ago but refuses to leave the party. The time has come to bow out gracefully Dawg!

Auditions begin tomorrow in New Orleans and will hit New York, Tennessee, New Orleans and San Francisco. Hopefuls can also submit auditions online through social media using #TheNextIdol.

American Idol returns to Fox in January.
