Poor Keith Urban was smack dab in the middle of Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey's profanity-riddled tussle on Tuesday in Charlotte, North Carolina. At last night’s New York City premiere of wife Nicole Kidman’s latest flick, Paperboy, the American Idol judge weighed in on the crazy kerfuffle.

“I was the U.N.,” he laughed, with Nicole joking that he played Switzerland in the moment.

“I love it, I gotta say,” he added more seriously. “I love working with passionate people. I love artists, and I like everyone just sort of expressing themselves, and it’s a very alive and very invigorating work environment. A lot of passion … Randy [Jackson]’s the craziest, so you know, I’m unpredictable.”
