According to EOnline.com, Randy Jackson has made a statement that he is leaving American Idol.
With all the talk about an American Idol shakeup, I guess Randy is getting out before getting the axe!
Randy made a statement regarding his exit:
"Yo! Yo! Yo! To put all of the speculation to the rest, after 12 years of judging on American Idol I have decided it is time to leave after this season," he says. "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."
Earlier reports also state that Mariah Carey has dumped Randy Jackson as her manager.
So, it looks like we are going to get a whole new set of Idol judges. The problem is, will they just get the big stars who know nothing about judging?
I wish Idol would go back to basics. 3 judges who care more about the contestants, than themselves.
What do you think about Randy Jackson leaving the American Idol judges table? Is it about time?
