For country music star Keith Urban, there’s never a dull moment sitting between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey in the American Idol judging lineup.

Keith told Chicago radio station US 99.5 that when it comes to Nicki and Mariah, “You never know. It's an unpredictable environment!” But he made it clear that he can hold his own against his diva-licious fellow judges. “I know how to handle myself!” he exclaimed.

Keith, who’s been bouncing back and forth between the Idol auditions and his own shows in Las Vegas, said he’s impressed with the auditioners the judges have met with so far. “I’ve been amazed at the level of talent we’ve been hearing,” he commented.

No doubt, there’ll be a few blooper-worthy auditioners in the mix as well. We can’t wait to see how Keith reacts to those tryouts!
