American Idol To Dump ENTIRE Judging Panel?! Replacement Rumors Are Swirling!

mariah carey replacement rumor american idol

This is going to be a messy breakup.

Rumors have been rampant that Mariah Carey was getting the boot, but now we're hearing that American Idol will be kicking its entire judging panel to the reality TV curb.

Say "Hi" to Britney Spears for us! LOLz (just kidding.. love you Brit Brit)

But SERIOUSLY.

Mariah, Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj, and MAYBE EVEN Randy Jackson will be replaced in an effort to boost AI's sinking ratings.

A source close to production said:

"Yes, we want to do a whole new panel—but, just like last time around, it depends on who we get."

OUCH!

With the singing competition's ratings down a whopping 22 percent this season, there will ABSOLUTELY be no Mariah, but the "others, it depends who we get [to take their place]."

The fight for the 12th Idol is still WELL underway, but who will replace the not-so-beloved judges next season???!

Names like Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez, Pink, and Diddy have been thrown around, however we'll just have to wait until next season to see!

    Who's really surprised by this? Putting Nicki on the show was the worst decision EVER. She's a nutcare. And having Mariah the diva on there was far worse. I stopped watching after the first fight because honestly I want to see the contest NOT the judges being bitches to each other being both of them are on a power trip. I hope they keep Randy because let's face it, he's the last original judge on the show. It would suck to see him go.

    I stop watching cuz Mariah is so boring to watch…didnt the producer's watch "Glitter"?

    I certainly wouldn't mind seeing Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban return next season. Both are doing a great job in my opinion. The two of them also seem to have good chemistry. If Mariah is gone from the panel, there will be a whole new dynamic as well, because she just rubs Nicki the wrong way (and vice-versa). Nicki is the best thing about American Idol this season for me. She is extremely entertaining and you never know what interesting things she is going to say next. If Nicki is not on the show next season, then I will just stop watching.

    Go figure, after these judges pick the most talented top girls ever. Ugh I love these judges.

    Re: Prince Charming – you're kidding me right? She's annoying and she's causes so much drama if she doesn't get her way. Really throwing a temper tantrum onstage because your "favorite" gets kicked off really shows character. Get real.

    No,not Randy or Keith!!!I agree that Mariah and Nickie should go as their scrabbling is tiring and annoying.The guys are GREAT

    This show jumped the shark years ago, time to put it to bed already.

    Nicki need to go. Too much drama. Mariah, Keith & Randy are all great.

    The whole panel sucks and the producers too. They keep re-hashing the same tired themes, Beatles week again? with the same tired people. How many youngsters can relate to Harry Connick Jr? REALLY? The show shows no creativity that's why the Voice kicks it's ass. The judges are incapable of giving an honest, unbiased opinion, SAD! Keith blames the song? Randy's orgasmic favoritism to the fat black chick, what happened to unbiased, honest JUDGING?

    Keith is awesome! He is a great judge. Keep him!!

    It was Nicki Minaj that prompted us to opt out after 1st show of the season. I'm sure we weren't alone.

    This American Idol was a complete set up in every way.we old see it all the way to the last three.the American idol group of company should have educated primer singer who can judge correctly. Angie was a clean winner. I would say Angie a clean American idol winner.

    MARIAH SCARY!!!!!!!!!! Your a mess. Nikki has it all. She has a way to tell you what's on her mind that many think is, "not professional." But her being, "vocal," and her choice of language is smart!!! You do not forget what, she says with her manner of communicating. Insults are needed, especially when they are correct and deserved to be addressed. And she gave you a tongue lashing that hardcore rocked. It's all true. So my question to you is why does your hair line start in the middle of your head? Your always tossing your hair around in your video's when you should be wearing a hair net. Regards……..Mike

    good! the show has become more about the judges then the contestants! now I can see why Randy is leaving! the produces also market it to be about the judges, ie, so many of the promo photos this years had Randy cut out of them, they should have stuck with the original judging panel, they were not so self obsessed!

    4 Simple fixes for "Idol:"
    1. Fire pathetic fame-whore producer Nigel Lythgoe
    2. Fire pathetic fame-whore TV exec Midget Mike Darnell
    3. Hire all new judges WITH CHEMISTRY
    4. Shift the focus back to the CONTESTANTS

    The show does not produce STARS anymore! It hasn't in years and I'm pretty sure that the ratings problem is not the judges! They keep thinking replacing the judges will change things but ratings have been on a steady decline for the last few years! JUDGES ARE NOT THE PROBLEM AND WILL NEVER BOOST RATINGS AND MAKE MORE PEOPLE WATCH THE SHOW!
