Randy Jackson quits. Mariah Carey quits. Nicki Minaj quits. #POW

Do you know what this means? This means, it took 10 years, 11 months, and 20 days for Yo Yo Randy to make a worthwhile contribution to American Idol. You see, Randy started the "quit before they fire you" trend, as both Mariah and Nicki have announced that they, too, will not return to American Idol.

Quick and painless is the best way to receive American Idol news. Thanks, Dawg!

First, Mariah's PR firm tweeted, "W/ global success of “#Beautiful” (#1 in 30+ countries so far) @MariahCarey confirms world tour & says goodbye 2 Idol."

Call Me Crazy A Five Film Premiere

Wow! Is American Idol really aiming for an all-alumni judging panel? This crazy – crazy good? crazy bad? not sure yet! – rumor seems to be true, and Jennifer Hudson is reportedly the first one to sign on the dotted line. 

E! News reports that Jennifer will judge season 13 of American Idol with two other former contestants. Sources claim that producers want Kelly Clarkson, who is purportedly thisclose to accepting the gig, and either Adam Lambert or Clay Aiken.

We all know that Randy Jackson has "yo yo yo, dawg'ed" his way out of the thirteenth season of American Idol, and rumors are swirling that Nicki Minaj is right on his heels.  So who plans to stick around?

Well, Keith Urban wants to judge another round provided the show isn't canceled after jumping the shark a few years ago.  That's the kind of commitment I like to see from my superstars turned reality critics!  I wonder when Mariah Carey will weigh in with her two cents…

So apparently there's room for one more at the judge's table alongside Keith Urban and Mariah Carey.  Not only is Randy Jackson hitting the road, it's now being reported that Nicki Minaj won't be returning for another season of American Idol.  Are people still watching?

I'll admit, I used to be obsessed with AI, but I couldn't tell you a recent winner.  I did, however, name every last judge for a question last week at my local pizza place's trivia night.  Blogging comes in handy all the time!  It seems that I'm going to be forced to remember even more as the revolving door of panelists continues to…well…revolve.

Are y'all ready for another round of American Idol musical chairs? 

American Idol's ratings are down a whopping 22% this season despite the addition of big name judges, country star Keith Urban, rapper Nicki Minaj, and pop diva Mariah Carey. The ratings-challenged series hit an all time low last week, attracting only 11 million viewers. In comparison, American Idol appealed to roughly 30 million viewers every week in its prime. Panic time!

Needless to say, Fox wants big changes, including all new judges. Again

One judge beat them to the punch. Randy Jackson, the lone original judge, announced yesterday that season twelve will be his last. "Yo! Yo! Yo!" Randy told E!. "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."

It's hard to believe that American Idol has been on the air for over 10 years. Around season eight, the American Idol judges started to change, which, in my opinion, changed the focus of the show. Sadly. It became more about the judges and less about the contestants. 

Clay Aiken, the season two runner-up, recently shared his thoughts on the American Idol judges. When asked if he will return to the show to celebrate the 10th anniversary of his appearance on the show that gave him his big break, Clay said, "I don't know that I would commemorate it on the show. I don't know that they did it with Justin Guarini and all those folks." 

Clay added, "But Idol back in those days was about the contestants. Kelly [Clarkson] and Justin and Tamyra [Gray] and Nikki McKibbin, they were all the stars of the show. And when I was on, Ruben [Studdard] and myself and Kimberley Locke were the stars of the show." 

Definitely not shy about his opinion, Clay concluded, "Now Idol is about the judges. I don't even know if they remember there are contestants anymore."'

Lo and behold, it's already Hollywood Week (my favorite!) in American Idol time!

Considering the exhaustingly long search for judges and the drama that ensued once they were finally chosen, I'm shocked we didn't hear more about the American Idol auditions. I'm not complaining – just saying! Now that Ryan Seacrest and the American Idol judges aren't on the road, they're dishing about the mood at the judges' table thus far.

Despite the big egos personalities, Ryan manages to describe the American Idol judges with one word: Randy Jackson - huggable, Mariah Carey - soothing, Nicki MInaj - pizzazz, and Keith Urban - whiskery. What does "whiskery" mean? Eh, who cares, Keith is delicious.

According to Randy, we can look forward to lot of "funny" this season. He says, "Nicki is mad funny, and Mariah is mad funny, and Keith is very quick-witted and funny." Randy adds that he wants to be Simon Cowell when he grows up, "We're all kind of silly, but I guess maybe I'm the harsh one. I'm the quickest to say no."

Another day… American Idol begs for another ratings dollar.

Earlier this week, Nicki Minaj was "miraculously" caught on tape screaming at Mariah Carey during an American Idol audition, and the tape "somehow" ended up in TMZ's possession. Shocker.

On the video, Nicki screamed, “I told them, I’m not f***ing putting up with her f***ing highness over there.” Apparently, Nicki is tired of Mariah's self-involved attitude. TMZ's sources have said, "She [Mariah] keeps bringing up how many records she's sold, name dropping people she's worked with, how many tours she's done, and how many Grammys or awards she's won. Nicki is tired of it."

Also, Nicki has maintained… Mariah isn't innocent. Insiders have backed up Nicki's claim. Reportedly, Nicki walked away from the audition just before the outburst because Mariah was constantly talking down to her. As soon as Nicki returned, Mariah allegedly called her a bitch… cue the "secret" video camera… Nicki lost her temper.

"It was intense," Ryan Seacrest said. Early reports even claimed Nicki made a death threat against Mariah. Putting that rumor to rest, Nigel Lythgoe insisted, "The statement [that Nicki made a death threat] is absolute rubbish.  It's absolutely not true in any way, shape, or form."
