NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Country star Keith Urban has agreed to return to the thirteenth season of "American Idol" in January.

According to Us Weekly, the announcement came Thursday.

Fox's chairmen Kevin Reilly told the entertainment magazine that he couldn't talk too much about it, but could confirm that Urban is returning.

"Keith did a great job last year; the fans really liked him. Keith's a funny guy," Reilly stated.

So far, Urban is the only confirmed judge. His fellow judges from last season, veteran Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey, all announced in May they were departing the show.
