Randy Jackson is the only judge of the famous TV show, ‘American Idol‘, who remained active on the job since its inception. The news that he leaves the reality competition after 12 years of judging came as a shock for the fans.

The star officially stated that he feels 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.”

Therefore, no matter how painful it is and whether his departure has anything to do or not with Mariah Carey not being the musician/manager’s star client, a thing is certain: Randy Jackson will not be judging on the 13th season of ‘American Idol’.
