Umm, this is NOT what we were expecting from TLC.

Seacrest Randy Jackson, OUT!
But don’t worry, dude, dawg, yo! — we’ll still be getting Randy on the show, only in the form of a mentor!
However, not everyone on the Idol set is feelin' it! Some don't think Jackson is "well-suited" enough to be placed in a mentor role!
Though, with only him and Ryan left from the original cast, it seems Randy has got seniority on his side!
And FINALLY, after seasons of reminding everyone how he worked with Mariah Carey, he’ll be working with her again, just in a different capacity!
Idol will also be choosing TWO more judges to sit alongside Mariah and most likely Minaj, totaling out to four judges, just like back in season nine!
OH the options are endless for season twelve!!!
