After earning record low ratings this season, the producers of “American Idol” have decided to clean house.
While keeping host Ryan Seacrest, judges Nicki Minaj, Randy Jackson, Mariah Carey, and Keith Urban have all been axed.
The last judge to call it quits, Randy Jackson, told E! news, “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. 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.”
On Monday, Fox will announce its new fall lineup to advertisers, and is expected to confirm the departure of the four judges.
