Keith Urban Says He's 'Interested In Finding Originals' On American Idol


Keith Urban is in the midst of promotions for the upcoming 14th season of American Idol, and says that this year he's looking to find a star.

"First of all, I never think of it in terms of finding the next anybody," he began.

"We want to find the first of anyone, and that sort of individualism and uniqueness is what I'm always waiting for with Idol. I want to find that person that is just extraordinarily original, because they are the ones. Adele was just very original. Taylor [Swift] was very original. The artists that have really solidified their careers and made significant albums; they're the ones that everyone else then tries to copy. I'm interested in finding originals."

Idol returns January 7 on FOX.
