We knew it was sweeps season, but we had no idea all four judges were getting swept under the rug!!
Sources say American Idol is cleaning house — neither Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban, Mariah Carey, or the veteran Randy Jackson are coming back for another season!
Unless your name is Ryan Seacrest, it's time to clean out your locker!!
Wow!!! We knew RJ was on the way out and viewership was dwindling, but we never expected this kind of shake up!
Apparently Fox execs are furious over the crap-tastic ratings!

There’s no question that American Idol will NOT be the same without the one and only Randy Jackson!
After Randy officially announced his 12th American Idol season would be his last, Idol participants were quick to comment. All expressed sadness at this veteran’s exit, and some even asked him to reconsider his decision!
Candice Golver, who auditioned in front of Randy multiple times before finally making it onto the show, said:

Is this a sign the ship's really going down??
Original veteran judge Randy Jackson put some rumors to rest on Thursday when he announced he would be leaving American Idol after twelve years of being its fun 'yo dog' judge.
In a statement, he revealed:

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

After all the feuding and fighting that has plagued American Idol this season, this will be a much-needed reprieve from the madness!
We've already gotten a taste of Mariah Carey's new single with Miguel, #Beautiful, and now, news has surfaced that its music video will be premiering IN FULL on her reality competition this coming Wednesday, May 8th!
YES! We cannot wait!

Randy Jackson sure has one cute bulldoggy!
He was being extra cute recently and luckily Randy's daughter snapped a pic of the cutie pooch.
So Randy posted the pic (above) online and wrote:
"My daughter @zmpjackson caught our dog giving his best @realgrumpycat impression"
Ha! That's perfect!
That looks just like Grumpy Cat, but cuter cause he's a doggy dog!!
So funny, thanks for sharing Randy.
