Randy Jackson will reportedly return to the judge's table this season on the hit singing competition show "American Idol."
In other words, they're running out of time to get big names.
The 56-year-old producer was rumored to be out of the running for a judge's spot and was allegedly being shifted into a mentor's role. But Fox has apparently closed a deal with him to remain a judge, according to Deadline.
Randy joins Mariah Carey at the judge's table. It's rumored Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj will finalize deals this week, though nothing has been confirmed.
