The wait is over -- the new judging panel for "American Idol" season 13 has been revealed and will be made up of Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez and returning judge Keith Urban, FOX has confirmed to OTRC.com.

The news comes after months of speculation and rumors surrounding the "American Idol" judging panel following the departure of season 12 newbies Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj and veteran Randy Jackson, who stepped down as a judge after 12 seasons on the show and the sole remaining veteran judge. Jackson is also set to return to the singing competition show as the in-house mentor, replacing Interscope Records co-founder Jimmy Iovine after three seasons in the role.

Ratings for "American Idol" have fallen in recent years, although it remains one of the most-watched primetime shows.
