Keith Urban is all abuzz over a Swedish electro-pop duo, two fellows from Down Under, a Frenchman, The Rolling Stones, Katy Perry and six country acts in a list of his favorite 12 songs of 2012. He writes in a note to fans, “What a phenomenal year this has been. As we come to the end of 2012…I thought I’d attempt to single out some songs that I really loved this year for all kinds of reasons.”
Keith will participate in an American Idol pre-screening event January 9th. The season premiere will be shown in movie theaters in 11 cities, and immediately following, Keith, host Ryan Seacrest, Mariah Carey, Randy Jackson and Nicki Minaj will do an interactive Q&A on AmericanIdol.com.
