The next season of "American Idol" is starting to take shape, as Keith Urban has confirmed that he'll be returning to the judges panel.

"Thrilled to be back on @AmericanIdol with my pal @RyanSeacrest," he tweeted Thursday. "Dying to know who the other judges will be!!!!"

"round 2, let's go!!" host Ryan Seacrest responded via Twitter.

Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez is also eyeing a return to the Fox singing competition, People magazine reports.

She's "very close to signing a deal with Fox to return to American Idol next season," a source told the magazine. "Both Fox and Jennifer are very happy about this and want it to happen very much."

In fact, the source added that the only reason she didn't return last season was because she'd committed to a world tour.

"But now that that tour is over, she has more time to raise her family, do movies and pursue television projects," the source said.
