Are this good news for The Voice and The X Factor? Maybe… since the big dog of the musical reality competitions is losing all three judges in the same day. And athough the only official announcement is that Steven Tyler leaves American Idol.
In his official release where he informed the news, he said:
“After some long…hard…thoughts…I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress ‘American Idol’ before she boils my rabbit,” said Tyler. “I strayed from my first love, AEROSMITH, and I’m back – but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I’ve got two fists in the air and I’m kicking the door open with my band. The next few years are going to be dedicated to kicking some serious ass – the ultimate in auditory takeover…On Nov. 6, we are unleashing our new album, Music from Another Dimension on the Earth, Moon, Mars, and way beyond the stars…IDOL was over-the-top fun, and I loved every minute of it…Now it’s time to bring Rock Back. ERMAHGERD.”
But that´s not it, Jennifer Lopez is also leaving American Idol, as per rumours according to US Weekly. And in the last moments, Randy Jackson is also leaving American Idol is what we are hearing through the grapevine.
What an exodus! Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson all leaving American Idol! This only can be a shake up of massive proportions, and the opportunity for Fox to re establish the juggernaut as such, or to see it fade. After all casting is a difficult thing. Specially in a case like American Idol.
It appears as Randy Jackson is leaving American Idol as judge, but could remain in a different role of a mentor though, and having Mariah Caray as one of the replacements in the judging panel. But who else? The Voice has the big names among a younger star crowd; and X Factor is also making moves, so where does that leave American Idol? Ellen DeGeneres didn´t work when given a try.
It´s time to do speculations and to pitch in names as to who will replace Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez after leaving American Idol.
