Say goodbye to Keith Urban!
The country singer announced yesterday that he will not be returning as a mentor on the Australian version of The Voice in 2013.
"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 Australia's Nine Network.
Nicole Kidman's hubby leaves behind fellow judges Seal, Delta Goodrem, and Joel Madden.
"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 - Darren, Delta, Joel, and Seal - thank you for making it so much fun," he added.
As sad as we are to see him go, we can't wait to hear his new tunes!
Are you sad to see Keith Urban go?
