Love him or hate him you have to give Simon Cowell credit...he is all most all ways correct. I happened to notice a tweet a few days back where Cowell scooped every entertainment publication and not one picked up on it till just now.
Randy Jackson will in fact be part of a four judge panel for the next season of American Idol. Whether or not a rehash of the same format that failed miserably with "Ellen" will work or not remains to be seen. With the addition of Nicki Minaj my interest much like Elvis has left the building. I do wish the show all the success in the world having worked on Season 8 and if any group of people can pull this off - American Idol can. You can check out the link below for complete details:
