Two judges down and one to go!
It looks like Randy Jackson may be following Steven Tyler’s lead and be leaving American Idol. Jennifer Lopez has also been hinting that she may exit the show as well.
Rumors are spreading that there may be whole new judging panel on American Idol next season. Randy Jackson may continue on as a mentor to contestants but not as a judge.
“[Show producers] think they need to freshen everything up now,” the source explains.
One very likely new judge? Mariah Carey, whose manager is Jackson himself, and who could fill a similar judge’s role assumed by fellow superstar Lopez, 42.
“They are in serious talks with Mariah and it’s very close to being a done deal,” the source says. “And they will move Randy into a more mentoring role.”
Insiders are speculating that Fergie and Adam Lambert my join the judging table of American Idol.
Do you think they would be a good fit? Will you miss Randy Jackson as a judge?
