Randy Jackson Demoted At American Idol
This is getting CRAZY! Randy Jackson, the last of the first American Idol judges has just been demoted according to TMZ.
Sources connected to “Idol” tell us … there’s some concern among the brass that Jackson is not well-suited for the mentor role … but they feel they need him because he’s the glue that helps keep the show together.
As for his replacement … sources tell us Nicki Minaj‘s deal is 99% done … but still not a sure thing just yet.
We’re told the honchos are keenly aware Mariah Carey isn’t a fan of Minaj and doesn’t want her at the table … a fact producers LOVE because they think the conflict and tension will be good for the show.
And … we now know A.I. will once again go with a 4th judge … we’re told producers are gunning for someone from the country music world for the third seat. Seat number 4 is up in the air.
Finally, altough “A.I.” wanted Diddy or Kanye West … we’re told they are definitely out of the picture.
Well now we have no clue who is going to fill that seat. Will.I.Am was among the names thrown out originally. That would be a powerhouse team of talent judges.
