Keith Urban is reuniting with his American Idol buddy Ryan Seacrest. Keith and Nicky Jam are set to be part of the guest lineup on Best.Cover.Ever., YouTube’s first original singing competition series slated to debut this fall. Ryan is Executive Producing the show, which will feature previously announced artists Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, Backstreet Boys, Charlie Puth, FLo Rida, and Jason Derulo.

Variety reports that the series is among the first ad-supported originals from the Google-owned video service.

More entertainers will be added to the lineup of Best.Cover.Ever. in the coming weeks. The show will be hosted by hip-hop star and actor Ludacris. Best.Cover.Ever. gives the superstars the opportunity to challenge an aspiring artist to perform a cover of one of their original songs. The hopeful who delivers the best cover will get the chance to perform a duet with the superstar artist that will premiere on YouTube.

Keith told Variety, “The internet is the ultimate vehicle for creative discovery. It connects people, lets their talents be heard and sometimes produces stars. I’m really looking forward to seeing what happens – to hearing how people interpret my songs – and, fingers crossed, to find a killer duet partner.”
