Keith Urban: Some After-Hours, Post-Idol Moments

It’s over. And we hate that it’s over. But until the next season of American Idol starts back up with an endless supply of super-talented and terribly-awful auditions, we have this image to remind us of what we loved so much about this season. Namely, Keith Urban.

At the show’s finale, Urban talked to reporters about how he and his wife Nicole Kidman preferred to watch the show once it aired on TV.

“We always watch it together,” he said. “It’s a delayed telecast out here (in Los Angeles), so we go home and watch it together. We get in our jammies and watch it. It’s a good look.”

And although he didn’t give any specific details about what kind of pajamas he wears, I think everyone has an image in their head of what he might wear to bed. Probably some Brooks Brothers broadcloth pajama pants and a plain white T-shirt, right? (And we also have a pretty good idea of he might never ever wear, like a silky Hugh Hefner robe or any kind of guitar-themed flannels.)

As for what’s next for Urban and his re-election to the American Idol bench, it sounds like he’s hopeful without getting his hopes up.

“I’m looking forward to it a lot,” he said. “I hope all of us stay intact. I’ve had a really great time, and I feel like we’ve got a good groove going.”
