"The judges' panel is thinning out, isn't it?" DeGeneres asked, adding, "A lot going on over there. Do you have any announcements for us?"

"Well, of course Randy [Jackson] is leaving as he said and I'm here to announce today that I'm going to be replacing Randy, which is fantastic," Urban joked. "It's bittersweet really."

"I'm going to miss Randy, I got to say," he added. "He's a beautiful part of that whole institution."

Urban then broke out into an impromptu performance of his new song "Little Bit of Everything." Check out the whole clip for yourself!
