Randy Jackson is excusing himself from the table… Well, the American Idol judges’ table, that is.
According to TMZ, the last remaining original judge will leave his chair open to someone new, but will still stick around as a mentor…
Mariah Carey is the only 100 percent confirmed new judge, but she won’t be sitting alone.
Nicki Minaj’s deal to fill another seat is reportedly 99 percent complete, and country music star Keith Urban is apparently twanging in there as a strong candidate too.
TMZ reports that Idol is looking for a fourth judge though, and with Randy hitting the dawg door, that leaves another open spot.
We’re not sure who’ll replace Randy, but we guess he can’t judge.
