After tonight, American Idol will be down to two finalists. But the show will also be facing a future with one less judge!
"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."
Randy was the last original judge left on the popular singing competition.
