TV Guide Magazine: Keith, you left a judging gig on Australia’s The Voice to join Idol. Why is Idol the better fit?
Urban: 
The fact that it’s given birth to legitimate artists, not just people that were popular that season and then faded away.

Well there it is. STS, everyone else.

Peep the whole interview here – which features excerpts from Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, and Randy Jackson.
