After two more judges have left the "American Idol" team, the only remaining original judge Randy Jackson recently spoke about his feelings towards his former co-stars.
In a statement released to Gossip Cop on Friday (July 13), the 56-year-old musician said, " Steven and Jennifer are truly two of the most talented and consummate professionals I've worked with," adding, "I was friends with them before we hopped on this crazy journey together and I have no doubt our friendships will continue long after. I will love them for life."
If the latest "American Idol" buzz is true, Mariah Carey could be the next diva to join the judging panel of the FOX singing competition.
The "Touch My Body" songstress is said to be in negotations to become a judge on AI following the announcement that Steven Tyler is leaving and Jennifer Lopez is still unsure whether to sign on for another season.
"After some long ... hard ... thoughts … I've decided it's time for me to let go of my mistress American Idol before she boils my rabbit," the 64-year-old told in a press release made public on Thursday (July 12).
