Randy Jackson is pulling the “You can’t fire me, I quit” trick and announced today he is leaving the show.  This came shortly after it was revealed that American Idol is planning to fire all coaches at the end of the season and start fresh with a complete revamp of the show next year.  One thing the source stated was that there will not be any high priced divas next year which points to the fact that having Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj were mega flops.  The show is down 22% in ratings from last year.  That’s pretty huge.  I always thought Keith Urban was a strange choice for a judge, but I didn’t mind him.  However, I didn’t feel he was anything that made me tune in.  I also don’t think Mariah Carey would have been so bad had she been paired with someone other than Nicki.  Nicki was pretty much toxic for the whole show and I’m a little surprised she was fired half way through (although I’m sure it would have been against her contract).  Nicki and Mariah kind of made you wish Paula Abdul was back, and that’s really bad.
