It's already 2013 in Australia, which is nearly a day ahead of U.S. local time zones. Country superstar and Season 12 'American Idol' judge Keith Urban is already welcoming in the new year while in Oz. He shared a New Year's Eve photo from Sydney, complete with fireworks going off in the background.

Urban, who never sees a hair out of place on that perfectly coiffed head of his, shared the New Year greeting via Twitter. "Happy new year from Sydney!!!!"
he posted.

It's looks like the folks Down Under are kicking off 2013 with a bang -- literally. Check out those displays of golden fireworks going off! More importantly, check out that ear-to-ear grin that Urban is wearing. Either he's clearly looking forward to a busy and prosperous 2013 or maybe, just maybe, his wife Nicole Kidman was taking the snap. It could be a combo of both.

It's good to be Keith Urban in 2013, though. Not only will the 'You Gonna Fly' hitmaker find himself as a judge on one of the hottest reality television shows around, but he'll be hard at work on a new album, which we hope to have our hands on before he hits the road on his 2013 headlining tour in July. Oh, and did we mention that he's up for a Golden Globe?

This New Year's Eve, we're thankful that Urban never forgets to share his big moments with fans.
