Randy Jackson out on 'Idol', Keith Urban sort of in


It's been rumored for months that Randy Jackson would not return to 'American Idol' next season, and now the LA Times says his departure is all but official, causing a void that the show will replace quickly and easily.

TMZ has a source (possibly a two-week old copy of the Hollywood Reporter) saying Keith Urban will replace Jackson and "take the third judging spot alongside Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj."

Officially, Minaj is not actually a judge yet either, perhaps because of this rumor saying Mariah doesn't want to share the spotlight with her. And I don't blame her. It's just like when I starred in my 8th grades production of 'Pippin'. Those other kids sucked, they ruined everything!
