Hear that, Jennifer Lopez! Your dawg is expecting you to return!
Last night, Randy Jackson stopped by Lopez Tonight to talk to George Lopez about the past season of American Idol and what it was like working with a whole new team of judges.
He, of course, had nothing but praise for J.Lo and Steven Tyler and insisted to the audience that we'll be seeing a lot more of them in the years to come on Idol. With loads of assurance, he happily proclaimed, "“We’ll all be back next year, we'll all be back!”
Fingers crossed! You guys certainly can't keep going on like this if you want to create a following. Every year new judges - it just ain't going to fly!
Check out the video (above) to hear what else Randy had to say about this season of Idol and what's to come of the show next year!
