Randy Jackson, reportedly confirmed he would be leaving American Idol after this season, Season 12. There are unconfirmed rumors that the entire panel of judges: Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, and Keith Urban would be changed for Season 13. Fox is not confirming though, with regards to the other 3 judges.
Randy Jackson has been with American Idol for 12 seasons and was the anchor in the various judges’ changes that took place in the show. He usually blended in with whoever came in as the new judge.
During Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler’s stint, the camaraderie and rapport among the group was apparent, and it was surprising why Fox had agreed to let Jennifer and Steven go. Ryan Seacrest would remain as host, apparently.
As this American Idol season comes to a close, and the Top 2 contestants from the Top 3, Angie Miller, Kree Harrison, and Candice Glover, would be selected for the Grand Finale, Randy Jackson would be lending some of his priceless advices to the contestants for the last time.
