Despite reports that ‘American Idol’s long-standing judge Randy Jackson was leaving ‘the dawghouse’, reports today indicate the legendary bassist has had a change of heart.
“Jackson’s presence on the show’s 12th season seemed to be confirmed Monday night when former ”American Idol” judge Simon Cowell tweeted, “Just heard randy is back on idol. Right decision.”
On Monday night The Hollywood Reporter declared that plans to move Randy into a mentor role have been scrapped, and that he will return as judge. In addition, Fox reportedly has ended talks to bring Enrique Iglesias aboard as a judge, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
And there you have it folks! Look like the dawghouse is back and in full-effect! The word on if Nicki Minaj will be joining the panel, however, has yet to be confirmed.
