Randy Jackson Stays Mum on Idol Return During Today Show Appearance

In a visit to the Today show this morning, Randy Jackson refused to comment on whether or not he would return to American Idol for the upcoming season.

Jackson is the last original judge of American Idol, and according to TMZ, he won’t be returning as a judge next season, but mentor the contestants instead.

However, Jackson wouldn’t comment on the rumors, or whether or not singer Nicki Minaj had officially signed on as a new judge yet.

“Listen, Idol is an amazing show,” Randy said. “My friend Mariah Carey is there, I think she’s going to bring a lot of excitement to it, and you know, let’s see what happens!”

Other names rumored to fill the judges table are singers Nick Jonas, Keith Urban, and Enrique Iglesias.

That’s all we got. Later, dawgs!
