We Know Randy Jackson Is Out At Idol, But Who’s Next?
If you missed it, Randy Jackson announced yesterday that this will be his last season on American Idol. In a statement, Randy said:
Yo! Yo! Yo! To put all of the speculation to rest, after 12 years of judging on ‘American Idol’ I have decided it is time to leave after this season. I am very proud of how we forever changed television and the music industry. It’s been a life changing opportunity but I am looking forward to focusing on my company Dream Merchant 21 and other business ventures.
Judging by the rumors, it sounds like Randy quit before producers could give him the axe. Sources claim Fox is so desperate to save American Idol, they’re planning to get rid of all the judges, including Jackson, Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban, which makes no sense because in a new survey, Keith was voted the favorite Idol judge of all time.
So far there’s no word on who’ll replace the judges, but rumors say producers are looking at Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Pink and P. Diddy.
Glenn Pitcher started rattling off people he’d like to see as a judge on American Idol. The man is strange. Of Glenn’s choices, which would you pick?
