So far, American Idol is doing alright for itself this season. With Randy Jackson holding down the fort as the last remaining original judge and the two newbie celebs holding their own, they might have a shot at keeping the show or another season or two.
Unless, of course, The X Factor explodes the way we think it will come its premiere in the states. Then, it might be lights out on the Idol stage.
But is Randy worried about that? Nah! In fact, he is looking forward to seeing what his old pal Simon Cowell has up his sleeves! He told sources:
"I'm sure it's going to be a hot show! Simon will always do fine. He's a very smart and talented guy. I'm sure it's going to be a hot show as well. He's my dear friend, we love him."
Aw! Sweet! They're bestest buds even when they are in competition with each other! We like that!
Hey, Randy, maybe if Paula Abdul gets hired on the show and American Idol folds, you can scootch over to X Factor for a guest stint and ya'll can have a reunion! Wouldn't that be fun?!
