Recent reports claim that Fox channel intends to replace all four of its judges. If this is true or not, it does not matter to the judge Randy Jackson. Media reports claim that Randy is now done with the show for good.
Randy said, “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”. The musician added that he is very proud of the way American Idol changed the world of music and TV and that it has been a life-changing opportunity for him.
Jackson also said he now wants to concentrate on his own company, Dream Merchant 21 and other business ventures. Over the years multiple changes were made to Idol but Jackson has remained the only original judge on the show. Every season of Idol has plenty of drama, but this year had it more than ever.
Recent rumors suggest that all four judges have the option to return to the next season, but apparently Fox will not renew them. Other sources revealed that there was never an option on the deal with Jackson. On the other hand, the former judge has plenty of new plans to keep him busy for quite some time.
