Long gone are the days where reality show judging panels remain the same for seasons upon seasons!
Reality TV’s most recent judge who announced their exit? X Factor’s L.A. Reid, who, after two seasons, has decided to step down and get back to his Epic Records duties!
Just a week ago, L.A. said he was “a little bit” sad to leave but now, it sounds like he’s
changed his tune going to miss the show more than he had originally thought!
Last night, Reid stated:

American Idol’s new season twelve panel has got EVERYONE talking — including the cast!
While we previously mentioned that veteran judge Randy Jackson claimed the panel was “on fire” this year, we also heard that Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj are getting along just fine!
… or so they say! LOLz!
Now it seems like the whole crew got together recently after NYC auditions for some dinner and to bond as the newly revamped Idol family!
Ryan Seacrest, who still remains as host, revealed:

This season is going to be very inneresting to say the least!
Mariah Carey tweeted the first pic of the American Idol judging table (above) from New York auditions with co-stars Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban, Randy Jackson and Ryan Seacrest!
We're lovin' the cultural and musical diversity that Simon Fuller and FOX brought together this year. Since the Minajesty never stops changing her hair style, Idol is officially more colorful than ever before too!

Get it, Kelly!
Now that Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole have moved on to the American X Factor, Mz. Rowland might be joining the judges' panel of the UK version.
She'd be replacing Dannii Minogue, who backed out of the show after she had scheduling conflicts with Australia's Got Talent, and joining Tulisa Constavolos from N-Dubz and Take That's Gary Barlow as the third judge.
She's said to be getting some mega bucks in a deal that will be signed sometime this week.
Kelly expressed her excitement for joining the show:
"The X Factor is an amazing show. I love Simon because he's so honest. Everything he says I agree with. I don't know what kind of judge I'll be."
We're sure you're going to be an awesome judge, Kells!

The list of potential judges is getting longer.
Rihanna is just the latest pop star whose name has been thrown in the X Factor mix.
Simon Cowell is said to be a big fan of RiRi and wants his panel of judges for the U.S. series to be BIG.
Fergie, Jessica Simpson, and Nicki Minaj are just some of the other names that have been mentioned.
Ri's a good fit.

Enrique Iglesias has reportedly been approached to host the US version of X Factor, which premieres this fall.
Enrique's never hosted, well, pretty much anything before, but he has dipped his toes in the acting pond, so maybe this doesn't seem too far fetched.
Meanwhile, Simon Cowell says he plans to reveal the judges this week, promising that it will be "the best judging panel so far."
It better be, Cowell. After so much speculation and so many rumors swirling about the judging panel, we're expecting greatness.
Speaking of which, why not just ask Enrique to be a judge??
