Looking for those Mariah Carey/Nicki Minaj fireworks from last year's American Idol judges panel? Ya might not find that same drama and conflict for the upcoming season, at least not according to the initial reports from Keith Urban.

Keith told USA Today that he and new judge Harry Connick Jr. and returning judge Jennifer Lopez all got along famously at the first round of auditions recently in Boston.

“We just have compatible chemistry, and, I think, as personalities we just sort of clicked really quickly.”

Keith, go on.

“I just think we are who we are, all three of us,” Keith says, “and it seems to be very, very, just good.”

So there.
