Well, it’s official. Keith Urban is returning as a judge on the next season of American Idol.

Most agree the “Little Bit of Everything” singer did an outstanding job on the show this past season, but that didn’t mean his return was a sure thing. As that season of Idol began to wrap up, Keith said it was a “relief,” since he no longer had to cast a vote.

In addition to this, fellow judges Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, and Randy Jackson also left the show.

All of this left many wondering if Urban was going to return–whether he’d be asked back, or if he even wanted the job again. But after months of speculation, he made the announcement yesterday on Twitter (and like every other fan of the show, he noted he’s also “dying to know who the other judges will be”).

The Keith Urban surprises didn’t stop there, though. Along with confirming his place as an Idol judge, he also unveiled his Fuse album cover art.
