American Idol to drop all 4 judges. Randy Jackson makes a statement

According to reports, none of the current American Idol judges are being asked back. AI ratings have dropped by almost 25% from last year. By far the lowest ratings the show has ever had.  
The Wrap reports:
“All four are gone,” the insider told TheWrap. “They feel they’ve lost their core audience and they want it back.”
E! News reports:
“Yes, we want to do a whole new panel - but, just like last time around, it depends on who we get,” a Fox source confirmed to E! News in response to a report that all four judges will be leaving after this season because the now 12-year-old show is in need of a massive jolt of new energy.
The longest serving Idol judge Randy Jackson has released a statement confirming his exit from the show. Find it after the cut...



Randy has also made a statement confirming his departure:
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.”
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.

This season's AI judges are d worst set of judges a talent show could have. The blatant favouritism towards Angie was d height of it all. It was too much to bear and I'm certain that's d reason America didn't give Angie their votes and she now she's left d show. Nikki is terrible judge, so immature and her feud with Mariah was a distraction. AI is about d contestants not d judges but nikki and mariah don't get it. Well thank God we won't be seeing them next season. I pray Candice wins #teamcandice

Not bad i think Nigerian Idol need do same cos the last just ended one was trash.

Nicki Minaj... God forbid.

You should try watching So You Think You Can Dance, though it's a little late to join in this season. It's vastly better than American Idol, and the judges actually know what they're talking about.american idol
