American Idol appears to making some major rearrangements. It is whispered that Diva Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj may be signing on as judges. Jennifer Lopez may not be returning and Steven Tyler announced that he will not be returning to the show (I think he ran out of critiques to say lol). The biggest shocker is now Randy Jackson after being with the show since the beginning may not be returning as well. I’m not going to lie if he leaves I’m going to miss him Dawg. He is just part of the show.
It is being reported by Us Weekly that while Jackson would be leaving his spot on the judging panel, he would still remain with the show in a mentor capacity; and Mariah Carey – who hired Jackson as her new manager last November – is in talks to replace him.
“They are in serious talks with Mariah and it’s very close to being a done deal,” a source tells the magazine. “And they will move Randy into a more mentoring role.”
The move would be part of a shake-up at the show to bring in some fresher, younger talent in order to keep up with recent changes to Simon Cowell’s The X Factor, which recently replaced Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger with Britney Spears and Demi Lovato.
Adam Lambert, Fergie and Nicki Minaj are among the stars rumored to be in talks to fill the remaining two seats on the judges’ panel.
What are your thoughts on this selection? Will you tune in to see the panel of judges?
