Keith Urban: Nicole's just happy I have a job
New 'American Idol' judge says wife is not fazed by latest career choice
"American Idol" judge Keith Urban has confessed his wife Nicole Kidman is just glad that he has a job rather than be concerned that it's a stint on reality TV. The country singer has sold millions of records, sold out arena tours and has multiple Grammy Awards. Now, as he takes on a U.S. reality show for the first time, his Oscar-winning wife is not fazed by his decision to take on television.
When asked by entertainment site Zap2it.com what Kidman thinks of his "Idol" stint, he explains, "She's just happy that I have a job! When I took this, it was like, 'Oh, fantastic! We're going to be in L.A.!' Nic works there periodically. Then, of course, we started by not being in L.A. We've been going all around the country, to places like Oklahoma City and San Antonio and Charlotte."
Although their home base is in country music mecca Nashville, Tenn., Kidman has been working in France, while Urban has been traveling across the country for "Idol" auditions.
"American Idol" airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
