Who Is The Top American Idol Judge?

A recent poll voted Keith Urban is the best American Idol judge ever.

But it’s not certain whether Urban will return to the judging panel next year; he has already booked a tour at the same time as next year’s auditions. “We haven’t confirmed anything, but we needed to leave some holes there, in case another season happens,” he said. “If we do another season, those would be where the audition cities would go. But nothing’s confirmed at all.”  American Idol All-Time Judge Rankings1. Keith Urban 2. Simon Cowell 3. Mariah Carey 4. Jennifer Lopez 5. Nicki Minaj 6. Ellen DeGeneres 7. Steven Tyler 8.
