Keith Urban won’t be continuing with his gig on the Australian version of The Voice. Could it be because he’s moving on to bigger and better talent competitions?

We wouldn’t want to jump to conclusions, but it sure looks like it!

The country star has been rumored to be a contender for a judging spot on American Idol since August. And now, he appears to be clearing his schedule.

"I've been so fortunate to have been a part of The Voice," Keith said in a statement about his decision to leave his former gig. "And as much as I'd love to do it again, it's clear that the recording and promoting of a new album, a tour, and other commitments will keep me from being a part of the second season.”

Between this latest news, the reports that Keith’s spot on American Idol is a done deal, and Katie Couric’s recent slip-up, we think it’s safe to say that things are looking good for Keith Urban!
