Well, we've all been wondering if this was going to happen, and now it's official! Keith Urban will be the newest judge on American Idol this season! Keith will join Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, and Randy Jackson when the singing competition's 12th season debuts in January, Fox announced Sunday.

Since Mariah is reported to be raking in a cool $18 million for the season, I'm just wondering how much the Wonder from Down Under will take home? Congrats to Keith on his new gig from 97.3 the Dawg!
