Australian singer Keith Urban has officially announced his departure from The Voice Australia amid speculation he is set to join American Idol.
It is rumoured that the singer, who judged on the Aussie version of The Voice alongside Delta Goodrem, Seal and Joel Madden, may be interested in a judging role on Idol alongside Mariah Carey.
"I've been so fortunate to have been a part of The Voice. 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," Urban said in a statement.
"To everyone who sang on the show, I thank you; you've inspired not just me, but countless others. To everyone behind the scenes and to my on-camera family… Delta, Joel and Seal, thank you for making it so much fun."
