'American Idol' Season 12 premiere: Keith Urban, the quietly awesome judge
Here are some of his highlights:
- "With all that's going on these days, I loved your patience and pace."
- "The whole package didn't feel like it was quite there."
- "I think you're a natural singer ... I love the vulnerability in your voice."
- "Frankie, you're going to Hollywood, man."
- "People say, 'What would you if you didn't do this for a living?' The answer's always like, 'I'd do this for not a living.' I'd do it anyway."
- Hides under the desk -- "It's not safe!"
- "What other skills and talents do you have?"
- "Your low register has the most beautiful nasal tone, I want to hear more of that ... she's got such beautiful tone."
What did you think of Urban? We think he's got great potential as a judge. Hopefully he doesn't get swallowed up in the vortex that is Mariah and Nicki.
