We reported last month that Enrique Iglesias chose not to join the American Idol judges table which was the reason why Randy Jackson was moved off the panel, but suddenly rumors have hit the Iglesias is out and Jackson is back in. Iglesias already said no so American Idol is looking like they’re giving some major runaround on longtime Dawg Jackson.
Randy Jackson was being very cagey today on The View about where he was going to be on American Idol, but now THR reports that the nearly judgeless show has given Enrique Iglesias the boot and Jackson is back as a judge. That would be plausible, but we’d already reported at the end of last month that Iglesias had already passed on that opportunity after Idol had Jackson lose his judges seat hoping to get the Latin heart throb onboard. Now they’re claiming the reverse.
Iglesias has already said he was on tour with Jennifer Lopez, and he liked to have a little more privacy, and doing a reality show just wasn’t what he was looking for. It’s already the most public secret that Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban are onboard for judging with Mariah Carey, and now Jackson is back as the one familiar face returning to the show that seems to be getting as crazy as Simon Cowell’s X Factor with judges.
Nigel Lythgoe had hinted that he’d like a revolving judges table, but even Jackson commented today that it wouldn’t be feasible for a show like Idol. Right now, it sounds like someone had better man this ship before it really hits some major iceburgs soon!
