Yesterday, The Wrap posted a story about how FOX is planning to take a giant Magic Eraser to American Idol and get rid of everything except the title and Ryan Semencrest. FOX apparently wants to drop Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj, Mimi, Keith Urban and Idol’s executive producer Nygel Lythgoe into the trash and start all over again. If The Wrap is right, then FOX is one pink slip closer to completing its plan, because they have muzzled the dawg pound.
Randy Jackson told E! that he’s taking his final bow this season and won’t be back next season:
“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 have to decided it is time to leave…” Yes, let’s just pretend like Randy Jackson’s the one who packed up all his shit and left on his own, and the producers didn’t put his water and food bowl outside of the exit door to let him know that he can move on now. Now you know he got fired. I’m sure Idol will replace him with a Randy Jackson soundboard that will spit out lines like “Yo yo, dawg, that was pitchy, dawg” at the touch of a button. But whatever….
Now Randy Jackson can FINALLY go back to Journey.
