Apparently Ryan Seacrest is the only Idol personality guaranteed a spot next season!
Oh no! Randy Jackson might be joining Kara DioGuardi and Ellen DeGeneres in the American Idol unemployment line, according to the Dawg himself. “The only thing that’s for sure is Ryan [Seacrest],” Randy tells E! News. “Nothing has been decided.” If Randy gets the boot, that means the judges’ panel would look completely different when the show returns this January. Jennifer Lopez is expected (but not confirmed) to be joining the table, as well as Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, who said “I’m doing it” after a July 31 concert in Las Vegas. And with auditions for season 10 already underway — Ryan tweeted about a “hudge crowd for idol auds” while he was “rolling up to jersey” on Aug. 3 — time is running out for a final decision to be made!
As for the possibility of J. Lo snagging a seat at the judges’ table, Randy says he’s all for it! “If Jennifer Lopez is a judge I would be very happy,” he tells the site. “I love her.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Would you miss Randy if he was M.I.A. from season 10? And what do you think of Steven’s faux-announcement? Vote and leave a comment below! We’d love to know what you think.
