As American Idol approaches its season finale, it’s becoming clear who’s coming back and who’s being eliminated from the judge’s panel.
After 12 years, Randy Jackson announced he’s leaving the show.
And, there are rumors that FOX was going to clean house on the money maker — getting rid of all of the judges.
But, on Ellen on Tuesday, it appears Keith Urban is announcing he’s staying.
Here’s what he told Ellen DeGeneres:
“I’m here to announce today that I’m going to be replacing Randy, which is fantastic … I’m going to miss Randy. I got to say. He’s a beautiful part of that whole institution.”
It’s a weird comment, because he’s already on the show and wouldn’t be replacing Randy. In any event, RumorFix has reached out to Keith’s rep and FOX’s rep for comment.
