Keith Urban
is in deep negotiations with “American Idol” but the deal has NOT been signed … TMZ has learned.

“Idol” sources tell us, the country singer is in the final negotiation stages with producers to take the third judging spot on the show — alongside Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, who replaced Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler.

Keith will be replacing Randy Jackson — but he hasn’t officially signed the dotted line just yet. He’s still working out a few contract kinks, but it’s pretty much a lock.

He’ll be receiving roughly $3-4 million for his hard work — about half what Nicki Minaj is expected to make … and a paltry fraction of Mariah’s $18 million paycheck.

As we previously reported, there will be a 4th judge this season, but we’re told no one has been picked for that spot.  But here’s what we do know.  “Idol” honchos want a man for the 4th spot, because they don ‘t think this show will work with 2 women an a man.
