Reports have been coming out all week that the 4 judges will be fired at the end of this season of American Idol. Rather than wait to be fired, the most useless judge of all, Randy Jackson, has decided to quit. He tells 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,” he says. “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.”
Only Randy would start his statement with, "Yo! Yo! Yo!" He is probably the person who has been paid the most money to do absolutely nothing interesting for 12 years. Let's all take a moment to reflect on the awesome Randy Jackson moments he brought us over his 12 seasons of Idol... You can't thing of a single one either, can you?
Will anyone miss Randy? Did anyone notice he was even there this season? (Story via MJ's Big Blog)
We'd argue with Randy's logic, but he's kind of right. While American Idol is only producing singers who sell a few records and get dropped by their labels, X Factor and The Voice haven't produced a single star yet. Hopefully all of these shows cannibalize themselves and we never have to see them again.
The round where the judges actually see you started today so Nigel can no longer hold onto the world's worst kept secret: Your judging panel for next season is Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj (next to a midget Chris Sligh), Keith Urban (appropriately next to 2 fraus) and Randy Jackson. There is some VFTW potential here as Mariah and Nicki haven't even started working together and already hate each other's guts. Nicki is completely nuts and unpredictable, and that's nothing compared to Mariah. Keith Urban will be lucky to get a word in between these two. Meanwhile, the world would be a much better place if Randy never got in a word at all.

Just when you thought you'd got rid of him, Hollywood Reporter is claiming American Idol has given up talks with Enrique Iglesias and the fourth judge is going to be none other than Randy Jackson. Randy had been delegated to mentor/getting Mariah Carey sandwiches but isn't too proud to crawl back to his judge's chair, which surely is very well indented from his huge ass.
