After Keith officially announced that he would not be a mentor on the Australian version of “The Voice,” I suspected he was making room for this new gig!

Now, Keith will sit next to Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, and of course, Randy Jackson!

“It’s really an honor to have been invited to be a part of the ‘American Idol’ family,” Keith said. “I’m looking forward to working with everyone and to seeing the same passion that I have for music in all the participants.”

I am so happy that Idol finally has a country judge. Between Carrie Underwood, Casey James, Bucky Covington, Josh Gracin and the rest of them, country has always done good on the famous stage!
