Have you ever wondered what ‘American Idol’ judges Keith Urban, Harry Connick Jr., and Jennifer Lopez talk about when ‘Idol’ cuts to a commercial? In an exclusive interview with Taste of Country Nights, the Aussie signer tells all, and his answer is pretty surprising.

“That’s the busiest time,” he tells ToC Nights’ host Sam Alex. “I’m either tweeting about someone I just saw, because I do that in real time, we’re talking about what’s coming up next.”

Adds Urban, “Or we’re talking about who we just saw, getting selfies with people, I’m calling home … the most busiest time is in commercial breaks.”

So, unfortunately there’s not a lot of witty banter running between the judges while viewers get up to refill their popcorn bowl. However, country fans can expect a lot of banter during Sunday’s 2014 ACM Awards, when country funny guys Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton take the stage to co-host. The ‘Little Bit of Everything’ singer has a whopping six nominations including Male Vocalist of the Year.

Listen to the full interview below for more, like who the country hunk’s first kiss was with.

Sam Alex is the host of Taste of Country Nights radio, a syndicated night show which airs on more than 50 Townsquare Media Group stations nationwide.
