The last standing original judge bids final farewell.Despite rumors that all four judges may be replaced next season, Randy Jackson has announced earlier today that he is leaving the hit talent series American Idol at the end of its current season after 12 years.
“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,” he says. “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.”
