As Keith Urban played mentor to 200 Metro Nashville music and arts students on Thursday at the Country Music Hall of Fame, he hinted he may soon have a similar gig on American Idol.

“I would love to do it and hopefully that happens” was Keith’s answer, when a student asked him about his rumored spot on the Fox show, during a question and answer session.

Keith jokingly called the student “Barbara Walters,” before adding that he has some experience in the music competition genre.

“I did get to do a similar role in Australia for The Voice, and I really enjoyed it. ┬áThe thing about those shows is that mentoring aspect; it’s all about passing it on.”

Though he didn’t reveal any more details about his rumored American Idol negotiations, Keith did go on to give an impromptu performance of his hit “Stupid Boy.”
