If you guys are like me, you are anxiously awaiting the debut of American Idol this year. We don’t have much longer to wait, with the show scheduled to begin on Jan. 16 and 17. But did you all see Keith Urban on Jay Leno on Thursday night?
It had to be one of those awkward moments for Keith, when Jay brought out the 2002 issue of Playgirl magazine – with Keith not only on the cover … but with a lot of photos inside the magazine as well.
Jay did ask Keith why he posed for Playgirl, and he said, “There are certain career regrets that I have, and that falls into that category.” As a fan, I don’t think it hurt Keith’s career at all. As a Mom, I would have preferred he didn’t do it – but apparently at this stage of the game, I’m sure he would never do it again.
I know Keith has some judging experience, having done last year’s season of The Voice in Australia, but I still think he is so good with his music, and he has so many fans – I almost feel like he is above this kind of thing. Nonetheless, I will enjoy seeing him on television every week. I guess he knows all of his fans will like that part. Keith be joined by Randy Jackson, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj at the judges table for the new season of American Idol.
