Randy Jackson Shockingly OUT As ‘American Idol’ Judge For FOX’s Hit Reality Show, Report, Highlight Hollywood News

Overnight TMZ is reporting that “American Idol” original judge for the FOX reality show is officially leaving the judge’s table. Sources say, that Randy will stay on as a show “mentor,” but does not want to be a judge in the new season.  Sources also confide in TMZ that FOX and “AI” producers are concerned, not sure that Randy is cut out for the mentoring gig.  However, we are certain FOX does not want to lose another original judge from the series.

What a year it’s going to be, especially since it seen Nicki Minaj will be joining the judging table, and Mariah Carey reportedly hates her.  Guess the tension will be thick enough to cut with a knife, and isn’t that what reality TV is all about?

Now that “American Idol” wants a fourth judge, reports say, they are looking for a Country Western star to fill the final slot.

“American Idol” airs on FOX.
