TMZ sources reveal that Randy Jackson will not return to American Idol as a judge but could possibly remain as a mentor to the Idols.
Although TMZ reports that Randy Jackson “will” be a mentor on American Idol, the story goes on to say that producers want the longstanding judge to be part of the show but are concerned that Jackson isn’t a good fit in the alternate role.
It begs the question: why would Randy Jackson want to stick around if he’s not a judge?
The story also goes on to say that the American Idol deal for Nicki Minaj as judge is almost a done deal.
