But the real question is where’s poor Randy fit in to all this may-lay.
Apparently Mariah ‘hung up the phone’ when she was told about Niki’s involvement on American Idol… LMFAO
Well, according to an insider, the star who was announced as a new American Idol judge shortly after Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez announced their departure, had been planning to be the only woman in the panel.
According to ShowbizSpy, the insider claimed:
“Mariah was led to believe she would be the only woman on the judge’s panel..
“As for the composition of the judge’s panel, we’re told by no means is it a done deal. There are two scenarios being played out. First, it’s unclear if Randy Jackson will come back as a judge or a mentor. If he leaves the judge’s panel, there will be another spot to fill.
“Some bosses believe it’s a mistake to have two women and a man on the panel, and a 4th male judge would be necessary.”
What do you think?
