Randy Jackson preparing to leave American Idol. He is a well know judge on the reality show now for four years, this had been disclosed on Thursday that he will depart when this season comes to a finale. He had announced the news just days after reports did suggest that Fox would be introducing a new panel of judges next season.
Early in the day, Jackson sent an email to a number of entertainment web-sites saying, 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 added, I’m very proud of how we forever changed television and the music industry. It’s been a life-changing opportunity. He made a similar statement on Thursday’s installment of Idol. Jackson’s departure will leave only
