Keith Urban Voted Best “Idol” Judge Ever

The votes are in, and Simon Cowell, you have been eliminated. See ya, J-Lo. Adios, Randy and Paula.

The readers of popular entertainment news website Zimbio have voted. America, you have voted.

And your favorite American Idol judge is . . . Keith Urban!

The writers at Zimbio called the results surprising, but they concede that “Keith is pretty great actually.”

“He has been thoughtful, even-handed, and generally good at offering useful advice for talented young musicians,” according to Zimbio.

“He isn’t as quippy as [pop star Nicki] Minaj or previous Idol judges like Simon Cowell, but his words are probably more helpful for the actual contestants.”

Preach on!

The top five most popular judges in the survey were Keith, Simon, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez and Nicki Minaj.
