Keith Urban Talks Great Chemistry Of New 'American Idol' Panel On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (VIDEO)

With the new season fast approaching, returning "American Idol" judge Keith Urban dropped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live" to talk it up. The only returning face from last year, Urban will be joined by returning judge Jennifer Lopez and new judge Harry Connick, Jr. And he made it very clear that this new threesome has great chemistry.

But no matter how much Kimmel tried to goad him into declaring last season a disaster of catfighting proportions, Urban wouldn't do it. When asked if things were civil last season, Urban said, "We didn't hang ... as much." He went on to say that he had a good time last year, and it's a good time this year. Way to be bland, Keith!

"You guys will see it. I’m telling ya," Urban insisted. The new trio does look more amiable, or at least seemed like old pals when they popped up on "Ellen." Everyone talked about how great it was, and Connick, Jr. was cracking jokes at Urban's expense. If nothing else, Connick, Jr. should be good for laughs when the new season rolls around.

The new and improved? -- we'll see -- Season 13 of "American Idol" kicks off on Fox January 15. "Jimmy Kimmel Live" continues every weeknight at 11:35 p.m. ET on ABC.
