Randy Jackson out as 'American Idol' judge

Major blow to “American Idol” judge Randy Jackson, who has sat on the panel  since the show began. Page Six has confirmed that the “AI” veteran is currently  off the judges’ table and execs have offered him a smaller role as a mentor.

The music producer is none too pleased.

“Producers definitely wanted Randy off the judging panel, and proposed to  make him a mentor,” a source tells us. “Not surprisingly, Randy wasn’t too happy  about that and tried to negotiate a bigger role. The situation has not been  sorted out.”

However, with Sean “Diddy” Combs and Kanye West out of the picture, Jackson  could continue sitting in his spot if producers don’t sign another big male star  to judge the reality show juggernaut.

“At the moment the show is in disarray, as they still need to sign another  male star to the panel,” the source says.

It looks like “Idol” will be sticking with the new four judge formula. Nicki  Minaj’s contract is almost signed, but as Page Six revealed, her deal with Pepsi is holding it up.  Execs are hoping to go country, and are still in talks with Keith Urban and Brad  Paisley to fill out the panel.
