TELEVISION: Randy Jackson Getting New Role on “American Idol”

    Looks like the rumors are true!

    While fellow judges Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez left the judges panel “American Idol” back in July, Randy Jackson was still hanging on — until now.

    According to TMZ, Jackson has officially exited the judges table, but will “still remain a part of the show as a ‘mentor,'” TMZ says.

    This would leave Marah Carey, who signed on as a judge last month, sitting alone on the panel.

    “I’m so excited to be joining ‘Idol.’ I wanted to be there today and I wish I could’ve been there myself to tell you,” Carey told the audience at the Television Critics Associate Summer Press Tour via phone. “It happened really quickly. I can’t wait to get started in a couple months.”

    Luckily, it seems the long search for new judges may be coming to a close: Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban are reportedly in final negotiations to join the panel. Phew!
