Though the end of American Idol's twelfth season brought a swath of high-profile departures, there will be at least one familiar face on the judges panel: Keith Urban.
"Thrilled to be back on @AmericanIdol with my pal @RyanSeacrest and dying to know who the other judges will be!!!!" the country star, 45, Tweeted.
Earlier in the day, PEOPLE broke the news that another Idol alum –Jennifer Lopez– is "very close" to returning as well, according to a source very near to the star. "She couldn't return last year because she had committed to a world tour," the source said.

"I encourage her to do that stuff as long as it makes her happy," he told PEOPLE Wednesday at the launch of his NCredible headphones at a Midtown Staples in New York City last week. "When you got it, flaunt it. It's a beautiful thing to be a mother and to be able to express your sexuality."

She may no longer be a judge on American Idol, but Mariah Carey has retained an idol-worthy figure as she works on new music and takes care of her growing children.
During a working vacation in Capri, Italy, the star posted some photos of herself on Twitter as she got in some restful time with her family, including husband Nick Cannon.
From a black monokini that showed off her defined abs to a white string bikini that contrasted with her bronze skin, Carey looked stylish and carefree.

Will Keith Urban remain the last judge standing on American Idol? Or will Fox replace its entire lineup for an all-new panel of judges? What exactly will happen next season?
Until Urban's fate is announced, speculation persists on who will replace Randy Jackson, who announced his departure after 12 seasons on the show, as well as the latest stars to exit, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj.
After fun and dramatic seasons with the likes of Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Paula Abdul and the ever-so blunt Simon Cowell, the possibilities are endless about which star could energize Idol as the show competes with a growing number of singing contests, including NBC's The Voice, amid criticism and falling ratings.
