Channel 9 has confirmed that one of their most popular judges on hit show The Voice is departing. Keith Urban will not be returning to the show when it comes back for its second season. Rumours had been swirling, especially since talk of Keith taking a spot on American Idol heated up. Keith released a statement saying "Recording and promoting a new album, a tour and other commitments, will keep me from being a part of the second season." It is not known yet where Keith will go next, but he — and his uncanny ability to know every word to every song — will certainly be missed!
