If anyone out there cares anymore the judging panel for the upcoming thirteenth season of American Idol has quietly been announced.
Keith Urban is returning.
Jennifer Lopez is returning.
Harry Connick Jr. is returning. He was a guest judge or mentor previously.
Randy Jackson is returning as the mentor to take over for Jimmy Iovine.
So for all the talk of shaking things up and revitalizing the show, the brought everyone back from the past, including J.Lo who was probably one of the worst judges in the show's history.
