All of the judges on American Idol could be out following this season, which could mean next week. It’s all speculation right now, but the show’s reported its lowest ratings ever and there’s apparently no love lost between some of the judges.
Mariah Carey is on the outs with both Nicki Minaj and Randy Jackson. She's just dumped Randy as her manager and he’s reportedly the reason she got the $18 million Idol gig. Yeah, $18 million!
Randy Jackson is definitely Not returning. The only original judge remaining said, “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."
Keith Urban served as a judge this season, but we expect he’ll be more than happy to move on. He has new music and a tour on the way.
The FINALISTS: The 12th season of American Idol wraps up next week. Vying for the title will be: Kree Harrison and Candice Glover.
A surprised Kree told reporters afterwards, “I bought suitcases. I knew eventually I would go home and I really thought tonight was it. I can't even believe it. I feel so thankful that people believe in me enough to give me the opportunity to sing again.”
