Randy reacts! After news broke that both of his co-judges, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez, were leaving American Idol (which Randy has called home since the very beginning, back in 2002), Randy Jackson made a statement.
"Steven and Jennifer are truly two of the most talented and consummate professionals I’ve worked with. I was friends with them before we hopped on this crazy journey together and I have no doubt our friendships will continue long after. I will love them for life."
The rumor mill has been working overtime as a result of J.Lo's anticipated exit, and Steven's farewell did nothing to slow things down. Mariah Carey, Adam Lambert and Charlie Sheen (yes, Charlie Sheen… we're not sure why, either) are some of the big names more frequently mentioned as judge replacements.
Who would you like to see on Idol? And do you think whoever they get will draw more attention than Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid, Britney Spears and Demi Lovato over on The X Factor?
