With ratings not looking too good this season, American Idol is seriously considering shaking up the judges table.
Aerosmith frontman, Steven Tyler is first to go. He had earlier announced that he will not be returning to the judging table. Tyler said in a statement that he plans to go back to his “first love” and will be reuniting with his band. A new Aerosmith album is reportedly in the works and should come out late this year.
Latina singer/actress Jennifer Lopez had also announced her decision not to return to Idol. The two-time American Idol judge says she has other things she wants to do instead of returning to the Fox series for a third season.
The fate of idol’s last remaining judge, Randy Jackson remains unclear.
Auditions for season 12 of American Idol are currently underway—the producers’ rounds, with no judges in attendance. Today, they are in Chicago with three more cities to go. So the clock is ticking on finalizing the cast!
