Randy Jackson Announces His Departure From American Idol

By  |  230 Comments

randyThe “Dawg” is leaving the building. The last,original judge, Randy Jackson, has reported that he will no longer be a judge on American Idol, as one of its roughest seasons is almost over. There was speculation that Mariah Carey is done after this season and that Nicki Minaj has been asked back, but there was no indication that Randy Jackson was unhappy with his contract.

Jackson confirmed his departure via E!Online saying, “Yo! Yo! Yo! To put all of the speculation to the rest, after 12 years of judging on ‘American Idol’ I have decided it is time to leave after this season.”

He added, “I am very proud of how we forever changed television and the music industry. It’s been a life-changing opportunity, but I am looking forward to focusing on my company Dream Merchant 21 and other business ventures.”

Over the past three seasons, the show has continued to lose its momentum, as it was faced with stiff competition from competitor shows such as The Voice, X Factor, and America’s Got Talent. Jackson’s announcement comes off of the heels of The Wrap announcing that Fox was on the verge of firing all of the current judges after this season. Could this be why Jackson decided to hang up the tile before allegedly getting canned? It was also announced that Randy Jackson and Mariah Carey were no longer doing business with each other.Jackson had been Carey’s manager since 2011.

Past judges have been Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Kara DioGuardi, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, and Brian Dunkleman. Idol has brought success to several showstoppers like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, and Chris Daughtry. Idol is currently in its 12th season.

    Randy is probably leaving because he’s tired of the unfairness that goes on behind the scenes that the public does not see or hear about. Nigel Lythgowe (the Producer) is a racist but tries to hide it. Do you remember when they found out that this black contestant had a been arrested and did not tell them about it? Remember how he and his clone bought the guy out on stage and embarrased him on national tv and told him that he had to go? He never would have done that to a white contestant. Sure, Randy is not airing dirty laundy and I respect him for that. He is bowing out gracefully. Good luck to you Dawg…and always stay black!
